Like Facebook, Twitter is a great way to engage with the public and our members. And, it is a good way to interact with the media, key opinion leaders and our organizational partners. Twitter differs from Facebook in some important ways, most notably, the length of posts and the continuous flow of information. It is important to understand how quickly Twitter moves. Unlike Facebook, tweets are not weighted based on interactions; they stream in real time, and can be pushed down a user’s feed quickly. Twitter’s hallmark is that posts are limited to 140 characters.
Like Facebook, Twitter is a great way to engage with the public and our members. But it is also a good way to interact with the media, key opinion leaders and our organizational partners. Through your Twitter feed, you can share all of the wonderful work you are doing, elevate the work of other Leagues who are on Twitter, and form relationships with others working on the same issues as the League. Twitter should be viewed as a tool to help you engage with your supporters where they are.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
It is often said that one of League’s greatest assets is its reputation. One of the most critical ways that we build our reputation among members of the community is by being visible. That leads to two important questions:
Rooted in the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League has worked to foster civic engagement and enhance access to the vote since we were founded in 1920. Over time our work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters – particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and low-income Americans – have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote.
On Tuesday, June 4, 2013, LWVUS President Elisabeth MacNamara testified before the Commitee on House Administration on H.R. 2115, the Voter Registration Efficiency Act.
The League joined other environmental organizations on a letter sent to U.S. Senators encouraging them to support the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) funding at levels needed for the agency to carry out its core missions. The EPA implements and enforces environmental statutes like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water act and repeated budget cuts over the last several years have begun to compromise the EPA's ability to enforce these laws and protect Americans.
For 93 years the League of Women Voters has been a force for civic engagement in communities across the country. League volunteers from coast–to-coast are working to make their communities and their government better at every level.
