Our growing numbers are almost hard to imagine! Thank you!
Conceived On Twitter
For nine months straight Red Nation Rising has experienced exponential, viral, engaging, grassroots growth!
If you’re unfamiliar with how the Red Nation Rising social community was “conceived”, it started several days after the 2012 Election on Twitter with single Tweet using the #RedNationRising hashtag from the @NObamaChat Twitter account. The story on that background is here. Red Nation Rising literally started with one tweet.
The growing numbers of contributors using the hashtag on Twitter is astounding. Since that conception, the hashtag has made more than 3 Billion Twitter Impressions. The chart below shows hashtag numbers over the past week.
A Social Community Develops
Of course, Red Nation Rising has become more than just a hashtag. As Red Nation Rising continues to develop during its digital gestation, Red Nation Rising has grown to include growing numbers of good, decent Americans engaging with an Official Red Nation Rising Twitter Account, a Facebook Community Page, a digital daily newspaper on Paper.li, this Blog and most recently Google+.
Sure, the Red Nation Rising social community includes local, state and federal politicians, plus other political figures and insiders. That’s important.
But must importantly, Red Nation Rising is comprised of growing numbers of regular people. People who care. Good, decent Americans. We are a people who simply will not quit. And our numbers keep rising — organically — across every single social media network.
The Birth of a Red Nation Rising
While Red Nation Rising was conceived on social media, this week — almost 9 months since conception — Red Nation Rising will be born. Officially. Sometime this week, Articles of Incorporation will be filed with the Illinois Secretary of State and Red Nation Rising will become an official entity.
Shortly thereafter, Red Nation Rising will seek 501(c)(4) tax exempt status. Our application to the IRS will sail right through. Why? Because the last thing they need is to target our social community of Centrists, Conservatives, Libertarians and Patriots! The plan is for our application to request Lois Lerner approve our status, in an expedited manner, as her last official act as a government employee (before she’s fired).
The significance of 9 months from conception to formal, organizational birth is entirely coincidental, yet serves as an almost perfect analogy to Red Nation Rising’s future… to keep rising.
Thanks so much, everyone, for your massive support. We’re just getting started.
