End of Twitter/Demand Progress


Friends,

A bit of an emergency: The rumor all over Capitol Hill is that the House version of the Internet Blacklist Bill will be introduced this week, probably on Wednesday.

Please click here to urge your Congressmember to NOT COSPONSOR the legislation.

Our allies on the Hill say the bill's so bad that it could effectively destroy Youtube, Twitter, and other sites that rely on user-generated content by making the sites' owners legally responsible for everything their users post.

Nobody will want to take that risk, so sites like Youtube and Twitter could be forced to shut down.

And all of this is being driven by a few major corporations who are trying to protect their private profits.

Will you click here to ask your Congressmember not to cosponsor the legislation, at least until they've heard our concerns?

Thanks,

The Demand Progress team

PS: We need to completely overwhelm the social networking sites with info about this legislation so we can bombard Congress with constituent contacts:
