Tomorrow’s showtime. The hearing starts at 11:30 a.m. Eastern. The buzz on Twitter this afternoon was encouraging, with a lot of great tweeting going on about American Library Association, EFF, CREDO Action’s alerts — and ours, too. The Facebook group continues to grow, although somewhat more slowly than Twitter; and we’re close to making ‘popular’ on digg.* There’s definitely a lot of energy around the issue. Will we be able to tap into it?
One big question is how much pickup we get overnight and early in the morning from bloggers. The Wilshire and Washington folks have something on the Huffington Post; Jason Rosenbaum just posted on The Seminal; will others follow their lead? Our Calling all bloggers post has simple talking points … if you know any bloggers, please pass it along to them.
One way or another, we’ll get together tomorrow during the hearing for activism during the hearing. We’ll keep http://bit.ly/oct1hearing updated with the top-priority actions as we target specific Senators on the phone, Twitter, and Facebook. And of course we’ll also be sharing them via Twitter.
Twitter activism is the fastest of any of the social networks, and so that’ll be where a lot of the action is tomorrow. If you’re not a member already, please consider joining — it’s easy to sign up, and our If you’re new to Twitter page has getting-started information. An extra 20 or 30 people will makes a big difference.
And get ready for tomorrow; with luck, it could be pretty wild!
