Petitions designed to take full advantage of Twitter

Act.ly takes full advantage of Twitter with a clever new twist on petitions, the stalwart of online activism. Anyone can petition another Twitter user, and people can simply retweet to sign. The targeted person sees all the signatures in their mentions, and can click on the act.ly link to respond immediately.

Used by political campaigns, charities and activists of all kinds -- Greenpeace, former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, Joe Trippi, Governor Granholm, SEIU, PETA, and many more.

People are already calling act.ly "brilliant", a "stroke of genius," and "freaking awesome."

A small but effectively different and friendly easy to use site that l have posted my first item to be tweeted at http://act.ly/R16y to offer a FREE Debt Management Service for people of help and guidance, that would rather not borrow themselves out of debt. As this is just one of the causes we as an organisation support to get people debt free. Ian

Feed the poor! One of the most compassionate things that people can do is take a stand for world hunger & do whatever we can to try to alleviate the problems that come with such injustices!
