Don't have a twitter account, on account of I hate twitter, but I will like and post until hell freezes over on facebook
Thanks for participating on Facebook!
I hope you'll consider the Twitter stuff. You can create an account specifically for this action, so it would not interfere with anything else you're doing. As the tweets are prefilled, so it's really as simple as clicking "here", then clicking "send".
I like to use the fishing analogy for concerns like this. Surely you would not fish using pizza as a lure because you like pizza and don't like raw squid or worms? Of course not. You'd choose bait based on what the fish want. We're doing the same. Lawmakers care about social media. Even better for us, they believe they NEED to care about it. Sen. Reid even ASKED for questions to be submitted via Twitter. It doesn't get better than that. :-)

It will take you less than thirty seconds! Thank you for participating. Let's reach out to Congressional GOP leadership:
1. Send a prefilled, editable pro-poker Twitter message to House Speaker John Boehner (OH) HERE and HERE (separate Twitter accounts), GOP Conference Chair Sen. Lamar Alexander (TN) HERE and GOP Policy Committee Chairman Sen. John Thune (SD) HERE.
2. Try to wait at least an hour, then send these Twitter messages to Rep. Boehner HERE and HERE, Sen. Alexander HERE, and Sen. Thune HERE.
Please reply in this thread with posted, done, etc. to encourage others to participate as well. The past TWENTY actions have generated triple-digit participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!
If you wish to do more today, let's continue to reach out to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who has ASKED us for input for his 9/15 town hall.
The five prefilled, editable, pro-poker Twitter questions from Friday and the weekend are HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. If you've not yet sent these tweets, please do so today.
