LAPD had to issue a warning to the community NOT to put the new iPhone in the microwave. Seriously. http://t.co/Q2xRo24cpB

The app which allows you to charge your new iPhone 6 in the microwave is a hoax!!! Try it and you'll get an explosion and a visit from us!

In spite of all the warnings, a lot of people claim to have fallen for the prank:

At least one kid tried to capitalize on the situation:
"Dad, can I get a new phone? I fell for the microwave hoax lol." "No, you little idiot."

Others saw this as a chance to clean folks out of their follower list:
If you actually believed the rumor of the iOS 8 being able to charge your iPhone by putting it in the microwave, just unfollow me now. 😐

Another new report a day or so later reported that the new, thinner iphones were bending in peoples pockets. This tweeter tried to get just a little more pranking mileage out of that news report.
It’s fine, just pop it in the microwave for a minute and it’ll flatten right out. #theprojecttv

The correct answer, even if it is a little over the top, is:
Don't put anything in the microwave. Not your dog, not your phone. It's a deadly, radioactive death machine Just use it for things you eat.

Again, use it for things you eat. Not penguins?!?
Penguins are not microwave safe

If you are using the microwave correctly, for foods you eat. Don't overdo it with the cooking time.
According to Hostess, it takes about 45 seconds for a Twinkie to explode in a microwave.
