The power of twitter…

Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time watching the firestorm erupt on twitter targeting advertisers of the Rush Limbaugh Show after his horrific remarks about Ms. Fluke.  Companies pulled their ads. 

It truly was awe-inspiring to watch the power of the consumer in action. 

Today, Rush Limbaugh sort of, kind of, “apologised“…

I kept having this thought yesterday as I watched the firestorm of tweets…

Imagine if when an Adoptee Rights Bill was tabled in a state legislature – what would happen if adoptive parents started a firestorm of tweets at the Legislators to “Pass the Adoptee Rights Bill”.  To the National Council for Adoption (NFCA) to stop lobbying against Adoptee Rights Bills.  And to every single Adoption Agency that is a member of the NCFA promising to boycott them and get their friends to boycott them – unless they lobbied for Adoptee Rights.

Sadly – I can’t see that happening…too many can’t be bothered to fight for the rights their children currently don’t have…For those who think I am too cynical – prove me wrong…
