Social Media for Statehood: Tweet Protest tomorrow


Mayor Gray announced via his Twitter account plans for a virtual march on Facebook and Twitter and other social networks tomorrow morning at 8:28am. His inspiration for the odd time comes from the 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech on August 28th by Martin Luther King Jr.  Mayor Gray wants people to tweet:

Dr. King said “now is the time to make real the promise of democracy.” I demand full democracy for DC residents!

If you use a twitter client like TweetDeck or HootSuite, you can schedule this in advance, or you can use a service like Future Tweets to do it.

There’s no question DC is on the short of the representation stick, so get out and help raise awareness to the city’s unique plight.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. You need a hashtag for your tweet tomorrow! That way you can track its progress and reach! #OneCity #DCStatehoodNow. Just something so that the tweet can be searched and cataloged.

  2. I fear #OneCity would look a little too much like it was a Gray campaign effort. Also the point is to be a state, not (just) a city. #DCStatehoodNow or #DCStatehood seems preferable.

    But as you say, the mayor’s people should provide something.
