Why is Organizing for Action wasting its time tweeting at Congressman Bill Young?

in Uncategorized by

I just received an email from Organizing for Action asking me to “Tweet at Representative Young right now and say you support a balanced approach to the budget, not drastic cuts.”

Even if I supported this effort, it’d be a waste of time Tweeting at Bill Young. He’s not even on Twitter.

Bill Young is old school and, predictably, believes in social media probably about as much as he does the Tooth Fairy.

Organizing for America should know this and better tailor its messaging.
