Fight SOPA/PIPA: Tweet At Senate Leadership
The Senate is threatening to pass its version of the Internet censorship bill -- the PROTECT IP Act -- when it returns from winter break later this month. Will you tweet at Senate leadership to ask them to kill the legislation? Just click here:
Millions of Americans have emailed their own senators to ask them to oppose the legislation -- which is a big part of why we've been able to hold the bill up this long.
But some members of the Senate are more powerful than others, and we need to let Senate leadership -- Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, and Mitch McConnell -- know how upset we are that this legislation is on their agenda. They have the power to block a vote from happening.
We need to make them understand that hundreds of thousands of us are paying attention and will be looking to this issue when we decide whom to vote for in this year's elections.
Normally we'd ask you to email them, but Senate offices block emails from people with out-of-state zip codes, so we're asking you to tweet at them instead.
