#FlashTag @monologging # Specialists were working tirelessly to decode a cryptic message beamed to earth.

#FlashTag@ Indecipherable enigma, the experts were baffled. Days passed. Radar detected a looming shadow.

#FlashTag@ A blackout ensued. Governments succumbed to chaos. The army searched the sky, desperate to make contact.

#FlashTag@diranasaurus After weeks of searching, the quiet sky finally spoke to the chaotic earth. “Hello. We’re here.”
