I had the opportunity last week at Netroots Nation in Atlanta to get together with a bunch of amazing colleagues from Hustle, Mobile Commons, Color of Change, Working America, United We Dream and Everytown for Gun Safety to talk about my FAVORITE topic: Mobile Advocacy.

It all began with a tweet from a college friend: “Should Politicians follow all of their own followers? What do you think? Should mutual following be a priority for politicians on #twitter?” To which I responded simply – “No” and […]
