The Barack Obama administration has taken a fresh new approach, in the form of the Twitter hashtag #hc09, to lobbying federal legislators about health insurance laws. The new “Tweet your Senator” page is built using jQuery, flash, with integrated Google Maps, that display real-time tweets. Once you enter your ZIP code, and hit Tweet button, you’ll be re-directed to the Twitter website, and a Senator will be randomly selected, as will a message telling them to help pass the health insurance laws being pushed by the President. Also, if your randomly-selected Senator is a Twitterer themselves, their Twitter handle’ll be used instead of their full name in your tweet.
