To show how serious they are about social media, the Republican Caucus in the US House of Representatives is getting its game on by asking members to compete for followers and new media savvy recognition.
The only Pennsylvanian to compete in the challenge is NRA A rated Rep. Bill Shuster (PA-9). If you want to help him out – and keep up with his view of what’s happening in DC – then follow him @RepBillShuster.
The competition is a March Madness-style event with each week’s competition being narrowed down to the best performers. They launched on Monday with 56 competitors – most are House members, but a few House committee groups signed on as well. The first week’s round is to drive up Twitter followers. Future competitions will focus on Facebook and YouTube outreach.
Because social media is such a great way to interact with lawmakers and their staff, gun owners are encouraged to join in as followers. You can make sure they see your opinions and get feedback when they vote on issues that matter to you.
