Petitioning Made Easy
An effective way to raise awareness and organise people around an issue is to start and sign a petition or appeal. Twitter has made it pretty simple to create and spread petitions by combining both the means of signing and the means of spreading the word into the same action, by retweeting. There are many Twitter petition platforms available, and each works a bit differently, however, one of the better ones out there is Act.ly, which is now also a platform for organising tweetups. We love these simple tools that are enabling faster, more effective pooling of people power.
