About #rebelleft on Twitter:

  1. The service only works if you have a public Twitter account (free to start and use).  If you don’t, and there’s news you’d like to spread, simply ask for a retweet.
  2. All issues, news stories, commentaries, and updates from the left are welcome.  When tweeting a link or an opinion, simply append #rebelleft to the end of your message and you’re set!
  3. You can follow #rebelleft tweets via the Twitter Search Page.   There is also a Rebel Left Tumblr page that aggregates all #rebelleft tweets and news links.
  4. Spread the word! Feel free to post the picture above on your blog, linking to the Twitter Search Page, or use this smaller badge: rebelleft-small-finalLink to this post or copy-paste it onto your blog to alert fellow bloggers, activists, and Twitterers about #rebelleft.

  1. Don’t understand how that works. Have a public Twitter account and create tweets of relevant items I’ve posted to my blog. To what would I append the ‘#rebelleft’? I know you say “message,” but am embarrassed to say I still don’t understand.

    E.g., if I tweet the following: ‘”title of post” – URL of post – brief comment’ are you saying I should attach #rebelleft to ‘comment’ (with no spaces added)?

    Exactly — that will allow your tweet to be syndicated to the #rebelleft search tag and Tumblr feed.
