We're going to start running vote.org banner ads on the free version of Twitterrific. Cuz people should vote.
@bigzaphod Might be too much extra work, but as a Canadian I always get a little stressed when I'm reminded to vote in US elections. Because I sure would if I could, you guys collectively seem to make such terrible decisions on your own. :)
@tewha we need all the help we can get.
@tewha @bigzaphod Spicy Take Alert! This year I claimed my US citizenship at onerous expense, got dehumanized and misgendered in multiple US government offices, and consequently committed myself to a lifetime of filing taxes in two countries specifically so I could vote in the US. Anyone who's already a US citizen and is too lazy to vote is the moral equivalent of a stepped-on ketchup packet.
@bigzaphod not everyone is in the US though: will banners be shown to the rest of us?
@Schinckel for now yes. I need to push a new update that sends the user’s locale so it can avoid serving that ad when necessary.
@bigzaphod What a great idea. Others should join cc. @marcoarment
