I never thought I'd be a part of the twitter generation--never thought I would send a 'tweet', and certainly didn't ever think I'd be encouraging other people to TWEET!
CONSIDER THIS YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT!
Did you know that you can SAY A LOT in 140 characters? It is the new--instant way to communicate--and, even tho you are limited to 140 characters, I HAVE ALREADY SAID MY 140 CHARACTERS TO ALL THE SENATORS WHO HAVE TWITTER ADDRESSES. AND, MONDAY, I'm going to start all over -- with new messages. Here are a few examples:
@SenChrisDodd We covet your sponsorship of S.614 to honor the WASP of WWII. 15 Women patriots from CT. Please call Mikluski & sign on. YNOT!
Horray for Sen. Thune, co-sponsor # 49 for S.614. Read about Ola Rexroat--Native American WASP from SD! http://tinyurl.com/cblvmz
17 Senators still needed to CO-SPONSOR the bill--needs to be more than a blip on their radar screens. UCANHELP!http://tinyurl.com/cokrux
Listen to the WASP Speak: http://tinyurl.com/dakx33
@connectingwomen need 20 more senators to sign on to S.614 for the WASP of WWII. WOMEN HEROES ALL! CAN U HELP? http://tinyurl.com/cokrux
Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure. Abraham Lincoln. Help us honor women heroes!http://tinyurl.com/cokrux
I have only been twittering about a week. I have tweeted and been retweated! I've sent the @ tweets--which goes directly to the person--and I've sent out plain tweets--which goes out to anyone-- and the RT -- which is a re-tweet of somebody else's tweet. In fact, I think you can actually read all my tweets--but only if you had absolutely nothing else to do with your time;)
POINT IS, it works. It is instant. It is quick, and it doesn't cost anything!
IT IS ALSO VERY SIMPLE:
1. sign on to a new account on twitter
2. find some friends & addresses that might be helpful (mine is @flygirls)
3. start sending messages!
*You do not have to be 'following' someone to send them a message--this I found out the hard way.
TWITTER ADDRESS of the Senators are on the "NOT" list--and, once you do that, send tweets to other folks you find--and ask them to do the same. Diane Sawyer at ABC, @Starbucks Coffee, @Oprah--TWEET, TWEET, TWEET! That is how it will spread--one tweet at a time!
It is really that simple--and you can do it from your computer.
MONDAY, APRIL 27, I INVITE YOU ALL TO JOIN THE BRAND NEW "TWEETING FOR THE WASP" CAMPAIGN--
