@BarackObama is urging Twitter users to tweet specific House Republicans to push for a compromise on increasing the federal debt ceiling. 

"Tweet at your Republican legislators and urge them to support a bipartisan compromise to the debt crisis," read a post on President Obama's Twitter feed Friday.

The @BarackObama feed promised to "post the Twitter handles of GOP lawmakers in each state," and the posts are running through the list alphabetically by lawmakers' states.

Obama has also urged voters to use more traditional methods of contacting their legislators to voice their opinion on a debt-ceiling-increase plan. 

He called on Americans to call their legislators and voice support with how they think the debt-ceiling should be dealt with. As a result, congressional phone lines and websites were jammed on Tuesday, peaking at 40,000 calls in an hour — twice as many as usual.

The president repeated that message on Friday, and House telephone lines are jammed again.

Telephone circuits were reported at near capacity around 11:45 a.m. The office of the House’s chief administrative officer did not yet have total call-in figures, but spokesman Dan Weiser told The Hill: “Call volume is up, some people may experience some busy signals.”
