Tweet in the general direction of the White House

DC social media types David All Group have put together a neat little Twampaign (Twitter-campaign, y’see?) around the President’s healthcare plan.

So here’s the plan:
1. It is clear that a White House communications staffer is serving as a SpokesTwitterer and will read and perhaps even reply to our Tweets.
2. We are going to track and record all uses of the hashtag #handsoff for this experiment and report back our findings to you.
3. As long as you’re logged in to Twitter and using a web browser, just click here to load a draft Tweet and click “Update.” See below for more examples — please feel free to amend as you like.
4. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of anyone orchestrating a coordinated Twitter advocacy strategy. You’re going to be a part of history and help redefine activism.
Pretty interesting stuff. Good uptake so far too, with around 1700 tweets logged.
Thanks, techPresident!
