How to Use Twitter for Congressional Accountability

Twitter is a great tool to use for conservative activism. As an activist, you can build your reputation and promote conservative messages. But did you know that Twitter can be used for Congressional accountability, as well?

Our Government Relations team has reported that Members of Congress and their staffs are paying increasing attention to Twitter mentions, especially if they know the Tweets are from constituents.

Holding Members of Congress accountable on Twitter can take the shape of gratitude for conservative votes or challenges to liberal votes.

We’re excited to announce a new tool on the dashboard: Tweet at your Members of Congress.

As you know, you can use our dashboard to see the conservative message for your Member of Congress, as well as learn about his or her voting record, see upcoming issues, and meet other conservatives in your state.

The new Twitter tool gives you a pre-written Tweet that encapsulates the message in less than 140 characters and includes your Member of Congress’s Twitter handle. This ensures they will see your Tweet in their mentions stream.

When you click the “Tweet Now” button, you’ll launch a new window with that Twitter message. Provided you are logged-in to Twitter, you’re one click away from posting the Tweet. (Of course, you can customize the Tweet as you like.)
