“Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks: Twitter Rally Against Gov. Pence & Common Core”

By Donna Garner



It is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. I am 73 but am learning slowly but surely how to engage on the social media through Twitter.  If I can do it, anyone can.


Today, 8.29.14, Women on the Wall is conducting a Twitter Rally to counter Gov. Mike Pence (IN) who is speaking at the Omni Dallas at 10:00 A. M. (CST) this morning.  He obviously plans to run for President in 2016. He has captured the national spotlight by claiming that he led Indiana to be the first state to opt out of Common Core when in actuality he simply “rebranded.”  Now some 87% of the new “Indiana Standards” come from the Common Core.


This morning from 10:00 A. M. to 12:00 noon (CST), there is to be a Twitter Rally Against the Common Core directed at Gov. Pence.


If you do not already have a Twitter account, it is very simple to set one up; and it is free of charge and quick.  Go to Twitter.com and fill out the brief form.  Then go back into the Internet, type in Twitter.com.  On the far left side there will be a space that says, “Compose new Tweet.”  That is the spot in which you type a very brief statement (140 character limit).


At this link, you will find instructions about how to construct your tweets. Your tweets have to follow a certain pattern to make sure they get to Gov. Pence, and this link will give you actual examples to follow: http://truthinamericaneducation.com/common-core-state-standards/lets-get-gov-mike-pences-attention-tomorrow-via-twitter/


This morning during the hours of 10:00 A. M. to 12:00 noon, Women on the Wall will also conduct a call-in rally in which you can either call in and/or listen to various anti-Common Core experts: http://truthinamericaneducation.com/uncategorized/join-the-the-pre-hoosier-kids-deservebetter-rally-conference-call/


These are the tweets that I have already tweeted (posted) this morning and will resend them periodically between the hours of 10:00 and Noon.  Please feel free to utilize these if you so choose:  


@GovPenceIN Hoosiers #Deserve Better than to have their children’s hearts and minds stolen by Obama&Arne’s social justice agenda


@GovPenceIN Hoosiers #Deserve Better than to sell out their students to Obama&Arne’s bullying tactics


@GovPenceIN Hoosiers #Deserve Better than using a rebrand of Common Core
