Use Twitter as a Force of Good, Tweet Congress!

Wondering which members of congress are on Twitter? Want to follow and tweet action items in their ears? A new Twitter tool helps you do that!TweetCongress.org helps you find your Congresstweeple and follow them. If they aren't already on Twitter, there's a petition you can sign to get them tweeting.

Entering my zip code, I found and am now following Sen. Barbara Boxer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and signed the petition to get Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Twitter.

Twitter is a pretty cool tool to keep updated on the latest thoughts and actions of my congressional tweeps, especially as it pertains to environmental concerns. Thankfully, they're using it for news updates on official biz, rather than how they liked what they had for dinner last night.

So use Twitter for all its influence, and find, follow and twitter at your government representatives about green issues.
