We have a chance to pass antitrust legislation for tech monopolies! Call and email your senators, and tell them to support S.2992 - American Innovation and Choice Online Act.

More info in thread. Please boost. ❤️​

This bill aims to prevent big tech companies from "self-preferencing" their own products at the expense of competitors. It has bipartisan support and a good chance of passing, but... some senators might chicken out because they don't want to take a risk in an election year. We can help them get the message by flooding their inboxes and voicemail.

If you call, leave your zip code.

If you email, here's a script you can draw from:

Dear Senator,

I'm urging you to support S.2992 - American Innovation and Choice Online Act.

Big tech platforms abuse their monopoly power to to stifle competition, which leaves internet users with less choices for the services they use online. This bill would restore competition by preventing tech monopolies from "self preferencing" on their own products at the expense of competitors.

We need this bill to pass before the August recess. Can you tell Chuck Schumer to bring it to the floor?

Calling and emailing takes all of 10 minutes. But if you're especially lazy, you can also complete the form here (it's not as specific, but gets the idea across.)

remember the oblique strategies card: "Don't be afraid of things because they're easy to do."
