Guest Post by Steve Lunceford of Gov 2.0 Radio
Last summer The Sunlight Foundation launched a campaign to allow those in Congress to use Twitter as a tool to reach constituents. The campaign was successful but not all in Congress have caught on to the power of this new channel; that’s where TweetCongress comes in. Created by software developers at Squeejee , TweetCongress is a social advocacy site that encourages pols to tweet, and allows citizens to sign online petitions for their representatives to encourage their use of Twitter. The site has received tons of press and kudos, including winning a SXSW Award earlier this month.
On Sunday at 2 /5 p.m. ET, join me, founder of GovTwit, and Steve Ressler of GovLoop, to talk to the founders of TweetCongress on Gov 2.0 Radio. Adriel Hampton will join in from a live “Citizen 2.0” training in Dublin, CA. We’ll also be catching up on the week in #Gov20, including Government 2.0 BarCamp . If you can, tune in live, let us know if you plan to call in (message producer @meghan1018 and include last 4 digits of your phone), and tell us here what interests you.
