Yesterday, we told you…
- Current OSTA co-sponsors came from either a constituent’s request or a Congressional colleague’s recommendation
- Getting more co-sponsors will come from those same two methods
- We have a step-by-step strategy for passing the “One Subject at a Time Act”
- Passing OSTA will remove a big barrier to enacting the “Read the Bills Act”
We’re asking you to commit to two things…
- Open our daily email messages
- Do the simple action item contained in that message (if you possibly can)
Here’s today’s super easy action item…
If you already have a Twitter account, do nothing. You’re good to go for what comes next. But if you don’t have a Twitter account, please start one. Here’s why…
We’re going to use Twitter to do two things…
- Bombard our existing co-sponsors with praise and thank yous
- Ask them to ask their Congressional friends to become co-sponsors too
- You cannot do this with our existing ETP, because it’s for contacting your Reps — we literally need to bombard any Rep with concentrated effort
Is there any reason you might NOT want to have a Twitter account?
- Perhaps you think it will take too much time. If so, only use the account to do our action items.
- Maybe you believe it will violate your privacy. If so, work from a different email address and choose a colorful “handle” instead of your name.
- But please, don’t dismiss the power of what we can do here with this free tool.
Once you create your account, do the following for your first tweet…
@DownsizeDC I’ve got my Twitter account. I’m ready to help pass the One Subject at a Time Act.
If you do that, WE will SEE your Tweet.
Thank you for being an ACTIVE DC Downsizer.
