    I'm a recent twitter user.

    I am part of a group top conservatives on twitter - (#TCOT) check out the website http://www.topconservativesontwitter.org/ for an interesting organization model that I think might be applicable to the open carry movement.

    I'm going to start tweeting when I OC with a hash tag of #opencarry as a way to publicize open carry to the broader world.

    any others interested?

    twitter ID is same as on here lprgcfrank

    My intent was not to educate on twitter - just to communicate to those that are already familiar twitter.

    We can all speak with one voice through OCDO and its forums. Adding your message (signal) to the infinite rabble (noise) on Twitter will not raise the SNR.

    Kind'a like lottery-logic in reverse. "Your chances of winning a lottery are zero if you don't play, if you do play then they are nearly zero." The rabble will be heard on Twitter, join them and you join the rabble's infinite noise.

    I agree that we speak with one voice through OCDO.

    but consider this - as we OC we encounter the public - thousands ignore us - but some notice and are educated - some notice and are offended - in either case - we are raising the awareness of reasonable prople going about their normal day while armed? isn't that the same on twitter?

    Looks like another fad for people with cellphones and unlimited text plans.
