Storm the Airwaves on August 10, 2017

Date: August 4, 2017
Type: AFA Article

To keep the momentum going for 10 hours irreducible rest and protecting good U.S. aviation jobs, AFA is calling for an on-line Day of Action on August 10 (our minimum rest needs to move from 8-10). We are asking every Flight Attendant to contact your Representative, two Senators and to join in our social media (Twitter) messaging campaign.

The challenge is to get as many AFA members as possible to sign-up for a Twitter account. Twitter is extremely effective for contacting members of Congress and getting the attention of corporations and media. We will make it easy for you! Just take a few minutes now to set up your Twitter account (if not already signed up) and make sure you keep your user name and password. On August 10 (8-10), we will provide a click through list to targeted members of Congress.

Getting active on Twitter has never been easier.
 Please help make sure your flying partners, family and friends have Twitter accounts and follow AFA (@afa_cwa)

To create a Twitter account:

1.) Go to http://twitter.com and locate the sign-up box or go directly to http://twitter.com/signup
2.) Enter your full name, phone number and a password
3.) Click Sign up for Twitter
4.) Twitter will verify your phone number by sending you a SMS text message with a verification code. Enter the verification code in the box provided. 
5.) Once you've clicked Sign Up for Twitter, you can select a username (usernames are unique identifiers on Twitter). Enter your own or choose a name suggested by Twitter. Twitter will tell you if the user name you want is available. 
6.) Double-check your name, phone number, password and username.
7.) Click Create my account. You may be asked to complete a Captcha to let Twitter know that you are human.
8.) Follow @afa_cwa on Twitter.
