Today we’re officially launching our new major project – AskThem.io– a free & open-source platform for questions-and answers with elected officials at every level of government.
We’re thrilled to promote another powerful dimension of AskThem- enabling users to target questions and petitions to any verified Twitter account. Our aim is to promote dynamic dialogue between influential figures and entities across disciplines- from prominent journalists and artists to businesses and government agencies.
- Ask Justin Bieber about the provisions of his O-1 work visa…
- Ask Politico’s Chief White House Correspondent Mike Allen about his rural coverage before his pivot to national politics…
- Ask the Environmental Protection Agency about carbon pollution standards…
Here’s how it works:
- Visit http://www.askthem.io/ and click on “Ask your own Question.”
- Under “Who should answer this question” select the the “their twitter name” button.
- Type in your your desired twitter handle to submit a question.
- Promote your content over social media and encourage other users to sign on and support your question to push for a public response.
Below you’ll find examples of public officials available for targeting on AskThem:
(Users are not limited to those disclosed on this list, as anyone with a verified twitter account is eligible for questions on AskThem. We’ll be continually updating this list as we build to launch. )
