Blog for Iowa: Change that Works/SEIU to "Tweet" Iowa's Senator Grassley
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
Change that Works Iowa will be launching a Twitter health care story
blast on Monday June 8, 2009. The idea is to hit Senator Grassley's
Twitter account with one compelling Iowa health care story per hour,
for 24 hours. The action began at 10:00 am on Monday June 8th
and will continue until 9:00 am on the June 9th. Stories will be
distributed on Twitter through traditional posts from "CTWIowaSEIU"
(which Senator Grassley follows), and through direct messages to the
Senator's username, "ChuckGrassley." The timing for this action
corresponds with the week Change that Works anticipates Senator
Grassley's Finance Committee will take additional action on a
comprehensive health care reform bill. The purpose is to lobby Senator
Grassley's support for reform during this critical legislative week
using his favorite medium, Twitter.
