Join Tomorrow’s Twitter Bomb Targeting Student Loan Forgiveness

First off, what’s a Twitter bomb? It’s when a group of people send multiple tweets out about a specific topic.

And this topic, student loan forgiveness, is a doozy. At least in the U.S., it is.

Robert Applebaum, Founder of, shares that The Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 (HR 4170) is stalled in committee.

We must convince every member of the House Education Committee to stop stalling and to schedule HR 4170 for a hearing so that struggling borrowers can get the relief they so desperately need. Over ONE MILLION of you have signed the petition in support of HR 4170 and now, we need you more than ever!

Therefore, please join us in a Twitter-bomb campaign on Wednesday July 11th at 2pm Eastern Time (11am Pacific).  We’re going to bombard every member of the committee with tweets, using the hashtag#ListenToTheMillion to convince them that they must act on behalf of struggling borrowers NOW.

He’s asking that you send separate tweets to each member of the committee using the hashtag #ListenToTheMillion.  What should you say? Here are some examples:

Or any other similar message you come up with.

Will you be participating?
