Facebook just pulled their support for CISPA. We've heard that Google and Twitter are on the fence about it. We could push them over the edge and save privacy, *but we need your help.* Share this like your most basic rights depend on it. Because they do.
Google, Twitter, and Facebook are three of the biggest companies on the web and they house a massive amount of information on their users. It's important that users constantly remind them how much we care about our privacy. Google and Twitter have actually done really awesome things to defend user privacy like refusing to turn over data to the government without a warrant, and releasing transparency reports. We're asking them to remain consistent with that commitment by making a public statement on CISPA so that their users, and Congress, know where they stand.
UPDATE: Facebook is closer to unfriending CISPA! After pressure from our friends Demand Progress, they have they have expressed privacy concerns for the bill. Everyone share this petition so we can make sure they, along with Google and Twitter, come out against CISPA.
As it's written CISPA won't protect us from cyber threats, but it will completely destroy privacy.

If Google, Twitter, and Facebook are ready to walk the walk, they’ll join this list!Add Your Company
Many of the companies above are also members of the Internet Defense League, a growing list of websites and internet users who are taking the network and tactics that defeated SOPA and turning them into a permanent force that can respond to the biggest threats facing a free and open internet.
The Internet Defense League raised the 'Cat Signal' against CISPA on Tuesday, March 20th. Over 30,000 websites participated including Craigslist, Reddit, and Duck Duck Go, driving tens of thousands of emails to Congress.
