The NPA Social Media Team

The Fix the Debt CEO’s are spreading their lies all over Twitter and Facebook, so we have to make sure that our message that it’s time for corporations to pay their fair share is even louder than theirs.

Over the next few months we’re going to be hitting these guys hard over social media and we’re going to need your help to make sure that they aren’t the only voices our neighbors and Representatives in Congress hear.

Don’t have a Facebook or Twitter Account? Don’t worry, we’ll help you sign up for both!

Create a Twitter Account

  1. Go to www.twitter.com
  2. Type in your first and last names — they’re sticklers for “real” names
  3. Add your email address
  4. Create a password
  5. select a username (usernames are unique identifiers on Twitter) — Twitter will suggest one for you, but you can choose your own. They will you if the username you want has already been taken by somebody else. Your username is the name your followers use when sending @replies, mentions, and direct messages. Please note: You can change your username in your account settings at any time, as long as the new username is not already in use.
  6. Usernames must be fewer than 15 characters in length and cannot contain "admin" or "Twitter", in order to avoid brand confusion.
  7. It will also form the URL of your Twitter profile page. Twitter provide a few available suggestions when you sign up, but feel free to choose your own.
  8. Click Create my account. You’ll probably have to type in one of those Captcha things so they know you’re not spam.
  9. Twitter will send a confirmation email to the address you entered on sign up, click the link in that email to confirm your email address and account.
