Fix the PATRIOT Act and FISA: Tweeting points

The PATRIOT Act markup hearing starting in a couple of hours going on now is our best chance to influence the Senate legislation for significant reforms — Tracy Viselli’s post on Reno and its Discontents and Jessica Pielko’s on Care2 have background.  We’re going to try some last-minute Twitter  activism to kick things off.  Please help out if you get a chance by tweeting one or more of these over the next couple of hours.
