I have just launched tweetresponsibly.org, which will be built as a non-profit geared toward both Press Freedom and anti-intimidation. A tall task and a broad mandate, but we will experiment along the way until we get it right. Stay tuned!
If you have ideas, please feel free to share them here in the comments, or PM me. This will be a group effort.
Words matter. Words cause racial tension, confusion, and intimidation. Words cause wars.
Now as ever, it is important to hold our president and leaders accountable for their words. It is, of course, also important to hold our journalists accountable for their words — and yet to allow them the freedom to report without fear of intimidation or retaliation.
Tweet Responsibly.org is mandated to foster and fund organizations which protect our Press Freedom, encourage journalistic integrity, and, if challenged, to defend against censorship and intimidation.
Because words matter.
