Twitter People Did you know?

In honor of America's freedom I wanted to share this discovery that I made this week!

Do you want your quick thoughts known to your represenatives in Washington?

Well you can!

Follow @cxs on Twitter. Then @cxs sends you a link through a direct message, where you in turn go and register with your information.

Then when you @cxs a message like: @cxs Wondering when politicians are going to understand that if you cut education funding you are dooming the future of our country! #education

They in turn send it on to your Senator.

How I know it works?

I sent that message above on Wednesday afternoon. Within a few minutes of sending it I got one of those auto replies from my senator!

The only catch is that you have to # a topic that your tweet addresses.

Here are your main choices: #abortion, #adoption #afghanistan #agriculture #appointment #art #bailout #bank #budget #business #children #consumer #corporation #crime #defense #disability #drug #economy #education #efca #election #energy #environment #ethics
#farm #fcc #fema #finance #foreign #gas #gay #government #gun #health #hiv #housing
#icc #interior #internet #immigration #impeach #iran #iraq #israel #judge #justice
#labor #marriage #medicare #mortgage #nasa #native #oil #palestinian #pension #privacy #religion, #religious #retirement #rights #sba #science #solar #ssa #student #tax #telecom #torture #trade #transportation #union #veteran #vote, #voting
#welfare #wiretap #women

You can capitalize any part of these words to taste. Where the singular is given above, the plural will match as well. If nothing else seems like a close issue match, then you can use #government.
