Act.ly: Activism tools for your Twitter account

January 20, 2010

twitterbg2The act.ly application helps users bring about change and become active right from the comfort of their own home.

Numerous people don’t get involved, because they don’t know where to start. Act.ly gives users a starting point to help get ‘the word’ get out there about a issue or event they believe in.

The application is comprised of 3 ways to get you and your followers involved.

These three techniques–petitions, retweets and events– are easy to use and will help garner more attention to your cause.

Petitions can be signed by any Twitter user. In order to get a user to sign your petition, simply tweet the person by using the ‘@’ symbol. When a user responds to the petition tweet, it counts as a signature. Essentially, the more you tweet your petition, the more signatures and followers you will obtain.

The retweets section allows users to input the petition they want to be re-tweeted. Once you tweet the petition, act.ly keeps track of how many times it  has been re-tweeted. The pictures of act.ly users who have tweeted a post recently are shown on the right column of the site.

The events section allows you to create and promote events across the nation. Events created with act.ly are public and cannot be made private.

Act.ly isn’t just another application that tries to sell you an empty promise. Read the testimonial, which can be found here, from ‘Women Who Tech’.
