I’m not a
Twit Tweeter, so I can’t help, but commentor Currants linked to Matt Taibbi’s latest effort to annoy the Vampire Squids:
… To get the word out about Wall Street’s anti-reform push and stiffen spines in congress, we’re trying out Thunderclap, a cool new technology that lets groups of people tweet a single message together at the same time, breaking through the din and reaching a potentially massive audience. (Learn more here.) But we need your help!
Here’s how it works: Go here and click to “join” Matt Taibbi’s Thunderclap. On June 6 at 12 pm, together with hundreds of other Twitter users, you will automatically tweet a message –”[email protected] @stabenowpress Hear our voices and stop the rollback of Dodd-Frank http://thndr.it/JBZD9Z” – to Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota, the chairman of the Senate banking committee and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, chair of the Agriculture Committee, which has jurisdiction over financial derivatives.
We need 500 people to join the Thunderclap by June 6 or the tweet won’t be sent, so please join today and help Matt stand up to the Wall Street lobbyists.
Anybody got more information they can share — beyond the inevitable “Matt Taibbi is an evil loudmouth who doesn’t understand how finance works” comments?
