Founded by Alex and Ana Bogusky, the FearLess Revolution explores a new, more meaningful relationship between people, brands and culture.

We're seeing a dramatic shift in the way business is done towards more transparency, more collaboration, more democracy, and ultimately more value.

The U.S. Congressional Twitter Directory

Earlier this week, President Obama called on Americans to reach out to Congress regarding the debt-ceiling debacle. And a lot of people made their voices heard. The day after Obama's televised speech, the Capitol's switchboard was overwhelmed with 40,000 calls per hour and email traffic swamped congressional servers to a near halt.

So with phone lines and e-mail servers clogged up, the FearLess staff asked a simple question.

"Um, what about Twitter?"

We searched online for an official Twitter directory for the United States Congress, but we couldn't find an updated and easy-to-use directory that contained links to Congressional members' Twitter handles. So we rolled up our sleeves and built the damn thing ourselves.

Below you will find an alphabetical list of states with names of U.S. Congressmen and women. Each name links to the elected official's Twitter page. It's simple and efficient. Which makes it the complete opposite of Congress' ability to reach a compromise.

We recommend the following guidelines for tweeting members of Congress:

1. Only tweet Senators and Representatives from your state.
2. Be honest with your feelings, but don't be rude or vulgar.
3. Use the hashtag #FearLessForce.

Lastly, please share this Twitter directory with your peeps. We want as many people to be able to communicate with members of the 112th United States Congress. And hopefully we won't be responsible for bringing out the Fail Whale.

Thank you!

July 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRobert Stephens

Robert, simply type @ followed by the person's Twitter handle and then your message. For example, if I were to tweet Senator Dick Durbin I'd write the following:

@SenatorDurbin Please reach a compromise with regards to our debt ceiling. I don't want us to be a deadbeat nation. #FearLessForce

I have been an independent voter choosing to vote for the person rather than the party. This year, however, I agree with Pres. Obama; it is time to make some changes in Washington. I am so tired of the same old issues coming up time and time again. Let's get with the president now and refine the bills later.

The financial wizards will run out of rabbits to pull out of their banking hats mid-August. The best thing the Roman Empire used to do was declare a "Jubilee" every 50 years, when all debt was forgiven! Let's hope our representatives in Washington are cautious and respectful for a change.
