Tweet Your Representative About Captions!

Don't want to write or short of time? Tell your representative - if he/she tweets - in 140 characters or less, that you want captions online! Not all representatives tweet, but many do, and this is another way to reach out and touch your representative to ask for support for HR 3101, the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2009. Suggested tweet:

@[representative twitter name] @deafnessguide Please cosponsor HR 3101 so I can have #captions online.

The tiny url is a shortened url for Caption Action 2 on Facebook. This will allow the representative to get an idea of how many people want captions online. Below is a list of known representatives who tweet, and who have not yet signed on to HR 3101, organized by state.

The Caption Action 2 blogroll has a downloadable spreadsheet of Congress staff contacts, and it includes a Twitter column.
