AARP Responds to Tweets

Think twitter is just a bunch of nonsense? Well think again. Did you know that the AARP does not provide captioning for their webinars and online videos? 36 million Americans are hearing impaired with a large majority being 55 years old and up, which is the population the AARP focuses on.  Baby boomers watch out! We’ve arrived.

As a result of the wonderful collaboration between Lauren Storck, founder of CCAC http://www.ccacaptioning.org/ and Pearl Feder a member of both the SayWhatClub and CCAC, the two tweeted away on twitter, asking their followers to tweet @AARP for accessibility online for the hearing impaired and deaf AARP members.

A wonderful and supportive response from many members and several organizations including Marlee Matlin helped get a response from the AARP both to Pearl Feder on Twitter and on CCAC’s blog http://bit.ly/khRzZs

So, are you still wondering what twitter can do for you? Twitter is advocacy’s best friend.
