EFF Starts #CongressTMI Campaign To Raise CISPA AwarenessBy: Zach Walton - April 17, 2012
Twitter trends are sometimes the most intellectually bankrupt form of communication on the Web. It’s truly disheartening at the worst of times, but sometimes there comes along such a fantastic trend that it just restores my faith in humanity just a little bit.
The EFF has started a hashtag campaign to raise CISPA awareness called #CongressTMI. The point is to send your members of Congress Tweets telling them about your boring online lives that would be made available to them under CISPA.
It’s a short, sweet campaign that uses humor to bring attention to a serious issue. It’s already known that CISPA would allow ISPs and Internet companies like Facebook to hand over your information, but what kind of information? The proponents say it’s only for cyber crimes, but Twitter users think they may collect a little bit more. Here’s some of our favorite #CongressTMI tweets:
