#kt2 -- Kossacks Tweet Too!! - Weekly diary #9.

Longer, because we are now rapidly approaching 200 kossacks on The List.

Faster, because the weekly diaries will now show only follow links, not buttons. The buttons are nifty, because you can see at a glance if you are following someone (the button is grayed out if you are logged into your twitter account in the same browser), and you can see the number of followers for each person. But the buttons each link to twitter, so they load much more slowly, and now with this many kossacks on the list, slowly loading diaries are not happy diaries. So...

We will now maintain a new, permanent, separate diary with buttons!! Since the permanent button list diary is entirely optional, if you have a fast Internet connection, you are most welcome to make use of it. It will always be at the same place:


We will only publish the permanent button diary once, but we will always keep it updated, and we will link to it with each weekly diary. It will act as a reference list.

Why are we doing this? Our goal is to amplify Kossack voices by making it very easy to follow each other on twitter, and to find and respond to each other's tweets by using the hashtag #kt2. There are now dozens of tweets by Kossacks every day that add the hashtag #kt2. Find us by entering #kt2 in the twitter search field. Add #kt2 to your tweets. Add your voice.

And, combine our hashtag with the tags for other large progressive groups, like #UniteBlue and #p2, to greatly expand our outreach to other areas of the progressive twitterverse. Promote Daily Kos by sharing links to the excellent diaries and stories posted here.

If you're not yet following everyone here, it's really easy to follow any of us on The List -- just click on the follow @... link of anyone you'd like to follow.

Not yet on The List below? Simply leave a comment IN THIS DIARY, with your twitter name preceded by @ in the header, and you will be added to the top of the New Additions list in the diary, right below the orange croissant. That makes it easy for anyone to return to the diary and click on newly added people. You'll also be added to the cumulative alphabetical listings (front pagers are shown separately) that appear right below the New Additions, so you won't need to repost your twitter handle in subsequent diaries. And you will be added to the new, permanent diary with buttons.

Your #kt2 team continues to be busy at work finding more of us. If a Kossack has their twitter handle listed in their profile here, we take that as meaning that they'd be happy to have their name on this list, and we've been adding them as we find them -- a bunch since last week's diary.

If you'd like to join our #kt2 group, or if you come across a kossack with a twitter name in their DKos profile or a twitter button in their signature, who isn't on this list -- please drop us a message.

We'd also highly recommend the extensive Fellow Kossacks twitter List compiled by RLMiller, with over 200 names. We are going through that list and adding the names here if the person has included their twitter handle in their DKos profile. Please take advantage of that list, too.

Please also check out the other active twitter group here: DKos TWEETers, run by Angie in WA State, which provides tons of useful info about using and getting the most out of twitter.

Don't forget to add #kt2 to your tweets -- see you there.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.
Tagging tips - Search For Tags - Browse For Tags


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.
