Tell the U.S. Congress What You Think of Them Dancing with the Debt Devil
Earlier this week, President Obama called on Americans to reach out to Congress regarding the debt-ceiling debacle. And a lot of people made their voices heard. The day after Obama's televised speech, the Capitol's switchboard was overwhelmed with 40,000 calls per hour and e-mail traffic swamped congressional servers to a near halt.
So with phone lines and e-mail servers clogged up, the FearLess staff asked a simple question.
"Um, what about Twitter?"
They searched online for an official Twitter directory for the United States Congress, but couldn't find an updated and easy-to-use directory that contained links to Congressional members' Twitter handles. So they rolled up their sleeves and built the damn thing themselves.
Click Here and you'll find an alphabetical list of states with names of U.S. Congressmen and women. Each name links to the elected official's Twitter page. It's simple and efficient. Which makes it the complete opposite of Congress' ability to reach a compromise.
They recommend the following guidelines for tweeting members of Congress:
1. Only tweet Senators and Representatives from your state.
2. Be honest with your feelings, but don't be rude or vulgar.
3. Use the hashtag #FearLessForce.
Go now and use the power of social to be heard.
