Idea to try to help Ben Swann's Kickstarter campaign on TwitterSubmitted by adamjchoit on Sun, 07/14/2013 - 23:36
Looking at where Ben Swann's Kickstarter is at now, as I write this post, he's raised $257,333 for his Truth in Media project. Now, it would appear he's going to fall short of his goal, needing to raise almost 1 million bucks in just 11 days.
But I refuse to give up on Ben --- especially when he's never gave up on bringing us the truth and facts, whether it was about the RNC's shenanigans, the Federal Reserve's shenanigans, or Obama's, etc. (I probably could have used a harsher word than "shenanigans" for all 3)
Anyway, because ya never who'll donate or voice public support for Ben, I've been Tweeting to some "celebrities" this past week in hopes of helping out the campaign. So far, unfortunately with little success. C'mon Lupe Fiasco and Oliver Stone! Get on board!
Here's what I've mostly been using, which fits nicely into Twitter's 140 character limit:
@LupeFiasco Pls chk this out http://kck.st/16VIUJR & consider supporting #truthinmedia & @BenSwann_ If not with $ pls RT & publicize!
If any of you all wanted to copy/paste what's above, please do so. The example above, to Lupe Fiasco, gives you 5 leftover characters for longer Twitter handles fyi. It's includes #truthinmedia (which I think has more mainstreamy appeal than #libertyisrising). I include Ben's handle in the Tweets as well, because well if not donations, lets at least try to get the guy more followers.
Just thought that this might be a potential way to get Ben viral, perhaps even outside of our Libertarian circles. So I encourage everyone to Tweet this to celebs and Tweet this to friends. Tweet it to rich people you hate but who care about truth. Tweet it to anyone.
Ben's done his best for us. Lets do our best for him. And even if he doesn't reach his goal, no doubt we'll be seeing great things from him in the future.
Here's the link to his Kickstarter as well, no such thing as posting it too many times:
