Spring is here, the Occupy movement has survived the winter, and now, it's time to get busy (again) and take the fight back to the One Percent. Here's a quick and easy start, from the New York City General Assembly on Twitter.


Thx to all who 'donated their accounts' to us so far! We just fired off our first tweet from your tweet-cannons! #OWS

It's really simple: click on this link, and follow the instructions. You'll be asked to authorize @OccupyWallStNYC to send one tweet a month, a week, or a day, whichever you prefer (I signed up for one tweet a day, because it really is that important) from your account.

But wait, there's more.

You can also 'donate' your Facebook account, at the same link. It's the same kind of access you would give any other Facebook app, and the best part? It won't cost you a dime, your data remains secure, and you'll be doing something really important: reminding all of your friends and followers that Occupy goes on.

Now you may think that your few dozen or hundred followers and friends won't make much of a difference. You might think that, but you'd be wrong. Check out this app to find out how many people your followers, the people who subscribe to your personal feed on Twitter, reach between them. In my case, for my main Twitter account, that would be just south of three million people. Those are real numbers. Make them count.

Now is the time. This is our moment.

So, will the Daily Kos community stand with Occupy Wall Street?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
