I remember seeing an interview where Judge Jeanine Pirro talked about the power of social media and how effectively it can be used to promote change. She told about how difficult it was for her in the early years of her career to get noticed and get her message out to people. Everything was filtered through the press (which can be heavily biased).
But it's different now. You like a product or a person running for office? Or you have an opinion or complaint you want to share with the world? Post something on social media. It may be shared, and even "go viral" if you're lucky.
We've been conditioned to make phone calls or write letters (these days, it's email) to let our Elected Elite know how we feel. But the truth is, emails and phone calls are a one-on-one communication, so they can be easily ignored by the recipient. However, social media is different.
Most of our Ohio Reps and Senators ARE on Twitter. (Facebook is just so-so for connecting with our Elected Elite, because they can delete your comments off their page if they want to. Not so easy on Twitter.)
I would encourage you to sign up for a Twitter account if you have not already and connect with other like-minded Ohioans, and get your message out there. Be sure to "tag" your Ohio Reps and Senators, news media, etc. and include the hashtag #impeachDeWine (or whatever your issue is).
It's also important to use Twitter to praise the Reps and Senators who are doing a good job for us. This is not only a nice encouragement for them to continue, it also sets a positive example for others who might want to be publicly praised, too.
Note: I know about Parler, the new app which is intended to replace Twitter. I have a Parler account myself and I fully support Parler, because the censorship on other social media platforms is immoral and has become problematic. BUT... for right now most of our Reps and Senators are on Twitter, not Parler. So while I'm advocating for people to switch over to Parler, I also think it's important to keep our Twitter accounts for now... at least until the November election.
