GunSense ver. 1.0 TWEETSTORM (Sorted by State)
(October 8, 2017) In response to the Las Vegas massacre, FactPower is releasing another series of Tweetstorm Toolkits. This one combines the image to the right with the message below. Unlike previous toolkits, it includes both the Senate and the House.
Note: This tool works great for computers and Android devices, but apparently not for iPhones. You must be logged onto your Twitter account. You won't see the attached image until you actually send the tweet.
Lawmakers are in order of decreasing campaign contributions and therefore decreasing priority. Don't go overboard with these canned tweets, and space your tweets (long enough that you might actually be typing them), or Twitter might think you're a spammer and lock you out. We suggest doing 10 at a time. Take notes where you left off. If Twitter tells you your messages look automated, then STOP, and return to Twitter the next day, or perhaps do some retweeting. If you want to write some of your own tweets, click the lawmakers' names. We've pre-populated with a few important hashtags for you.
These are our examples of our messages:
For our NRA-funded foes (both R and D): RT: #Gunlobby gave @SpeakerRyan $249,652 since #SandyHook. How much #nrabloodmoney will he get after #LasVegas?
For Republicans with no recent gun lobby contributions: RT: #Gunlobby gave $55,046,572 Congress since #SandyHook. @RepRyanCostello no more #nrabloodmoney! #gunsanity NOW!
For Republican allies (very few of them): RT: We're counting on @RepDanDonovan to help fix the problem! #gunsense and #gunsanity NOW! Not another #LasVegas!
For any lawmaker (R or D) donating gun lobby contributions to charity: RT: THANKS, @RepTimWalz for donating your #nrabloodmoney to charity! Now let's fix this problem! #Gunsense NOW!
For Democrats who have taken gun lobby funding but who have not taken (many) pro-gun positions: Pls RT: So we're wondering where @RepDennyHeck stands on #LasVegas. More #thoughtsandprayers?
For our friends in the Democratic party: RT: THANKS @RepAdamSchiff 4 standing against #nrabloodmoney & fighting 4 #gunsense. Counting on u after #LasVegas!
If you like our Tweetstorm Toolkit, we'll definitely keep doing this -- with gun control and other issues. Please follow our new Twitter account >>HERE<< to receive future Tweetstorm releases.
