TweetCongress Lets You Succinctly Shout At Your Congresspeople Online

Missouri Senator and prolific Twitterer Claire McCaskill called our attention to TweetCongress which lets you look up your representative and senators and talk to them.

Each member’s participation and response will be different, of course, but it’s a good way to get a politician’s unfiltered thoughts and they do occasionally respond to direct messages. (We tried looking up our members’ info, but we live in DC and have no representation. Oh well.)
