Obama tweet: Call your congressman to boost healthcare

Barack Obama's official Twitter account sent out a message on Friday, encouraging supporters to call their district congressional offices to plug the administration backed healthcare reform plan.

Obama's twitter, which the Democratic National Committee (DNC) operates, does not tweet frequently especially compared to the @whitehouse account.

Yet the DNC used it to reach out to its 1.9 million followers, showing the extent of the national Democrats' effort to win the healthcare message battle over August recess.

Obama's account tweeted:
Members of Congress need to know how much support there is at home for reform. Please call your Rep's local office: http://bit.ly/4EeGB

The tweet links to a site published by Organizing for America (OFA), the DNC's field arm, that includes a calling script for district offices.

"The fight for real health insurance reform is heating up. If we're going to succeed, Congress needs to hear from all of us," the OFA site reads.

Here is an image of the call script:
