The folks at the Sunlight Foundation have launched a campaign to get senators to disclose campaign finances using Twitter. This is part of the movement to get greater transparency and accountability in Washington.

The idea is get senators to co-sponsor the right bill, and to defeat an amendment intended to kill this accountability effort. Looks like Sen.

This from the Sunlight Foundation:

Here’s the scoop: There are currently seventeen senators on Twitter. For the most part these senators have not yet signed on as cosponsors to S. 482. In fact, only two of the seventeen are already cosponsors. We need your help to petition over Twitter the fifteen who have not cosponsored and ask them to support the bill by signing on as a cosponsor. Each one of these senators will need a tweet sent to them (example: @jimdemint) with a message asking them to cosponsor.
