Shoutouts From Elected Officials on Twitter

The Patriot Journalist Network is a grassroots effort that began with 4 concerned citizens in October of 2012. Since that time we have grown to 2,425 members with an aggregate 8,861,668 followers. This was all done with volunteers and without funding. While that may seem impressive, it is only a start and the task at hand is urgent.

Each of our members has granted permission for our Twitter application to act (either tweet or retweet) on their behalf. This is NOT just another hashtag used by a group on Twitter who vaguely agree with an intent to support one another. The difference is that our platform does not rely on good intentions, remembering, or members taking future volitional action. Our application is able to robotically post (re)tweets on behalf of our members - even if they are not online. Obtaining such broad and unlimited permission is indicative of the passion and trust of our members. We take the trust they have placed in us seriously. That's why we are reaching out to you.

"Crusades" are at the core of our Twitter support for conservative initiatives. A special "Crusade" page is set up with the following key ingredients:

With the "Crusade" page built, now it's time to get it noticed. That's where you come in. We ask you to initiate a "kick off" tweet with a link advising the public of the Crusade page as a means of expressing their support for, and encouragement of, those that have cosponsored the legislation. Here are some examples of "kick off" tweets:

Congressman Tim Griffin
Congressman Mike Kelly
Congressman Steve King
Congressman Kevin Brady

You may notice a high number of retweets of these "kick off" tweets. That's because we use the permission our members have granted us to "Twitter Bomb" them! What's that? Simply, our entire membership RT's the "kick off" tweet!

Three More Ways We Support You

Our Blog Showcase. Our automation is continuously scanning the official RSS feeds of all GOP US House & Senate members. When a new article is detected, it is added to our showcase automatically. Better yet, our @PJNET_Blog account tweets an announcement of the new entry. Several of our members have opted to have our Twitter application AUTOMATICALLY retweet these announcements. But announcements are only tweeted when the subject (the elected official) is following the @PJNET_Blog account.

Our Video Showcase. Our automation is continuously scanning the official YouTube channels of all GOP US House & Senate members. When a new video is detected, it is added to our showcase automatically. Better yet, our @PJNET_Video account tweets an announcement of the new entry. Several of our members have opted to have our Twitter application AUTOMATICALLY retweet these announcements. But announcements are only tweeted when the subject (the elected official) is following the @PJNET_Video account.

Our US House and US Senate directory provides the public with a single page of aggregated links to all official social media pages

Some talking points with respect to our purpose and strategy in working with our conservative elected officials.
  • We do not use our Twitter leverage to rant, complain, badger, or even plead with elected officials. We believe there are many venues already doing that and they are not having any significant impact on policy. We further believe that elected officials are sick and tired of hearing the complaining, pessimism, pressuring, etc. Instead, we have chosen to take a positive approach by publicly supporting and applauding favorable actions - LOUDLY!
  • However, we are willing and eager to support elected officials who wish to speak out in opposition of liberal initiatives (gun control comes to mind)
  • We wish to reward and applaud publicly any elected official who acts favorably in the advancement of the conservative cause. In fact, a recent "Crusade" thanks ALL Congressional members who voted in favor of #NoBudgetNoPay - regardless of their party affiliation.
  • It is our hope to proactively work with our conservative elected official in a strategic and coordinated manner. We desire to form lasting partnerships to work with those elected officials who are in a position to implement conservative policy rather than just react with tweets

We are ready, willing, and able to help. However, we must add that we also need your help and it is our hope that we can help each other. In order to go to the next level, we need to be more than a bunch of tweets. We do not wish to be known as another (albeit effective) Twitter Bot. Here are some ways you can help us:
  • Use the #PJNET hashtag! Our automation is continuously scanning all GOP House & Senate twitter timelines. When we detect the use of the #PJNET hashtag, we have several members who have opted to have our Twitter application RT it for them automatically. Join the growing group of US House & Senate leaders using the #PJNET hashtag.
  • Folllow @PJNET_Blog and @PJNET_Video. Doing so will brand you as a friend of the #PJNET movement, get you an "@" mention when announcements are tweeted. BTW, several of our members have elected to AUTOMATICALLY retweet announcements from these accounts.
  • Assist us in reaching other elected officials favorable to the conservative cause. As you know, it takes time to create and nurture such relationships. Being a new technology makes it difficult to explain in terms they are familiar with and is sometimes met with understandable initial skepticism. Your credibility and favorable introduction would faciliate and accelerate lighting up Twitter with the important message of other champions of conservatism.
  • Make a Donation - that's right, it take's real money to run this operation and we've noticed that campaigns have no problem asking for financial support so we thought we'd give you the opportunity to do what you ask others to do!
