In a tweet feat of epic proportions, PETA nabbed the number two spot in USA Today's #AmericaWants hash tag contest on Twitter! The great news was announced in an ad that ran in yesterday's USA Today.
Kudos to all of you who tweeted in support of PETA's campaign to stop Canada's bludgeoning of baby seals. That includes the wonderful Pink, Pamela Anderson, Channing and Jenna Tatum, Perez Hilton, and Stephanie Pratt.
But this is no time to rest on our laurels: We have to keep the pressure on the Canadian government. Hurry—while your Twitter finger is still twitching, send a tweet to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper letting him know that the tweeps have spoken and it's time to ban the seal slaughter.
