WASHINGTON, Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A diverse group of over thirty progressive organizations are calling on their members to perform some social media hygiene by following the voices that will lead and shape the new Biden Administration. Playing on the classic #FF (Follow Friday) Twitter hashtag, these groups will rally their membership and the general public under the #ForwardFriday hashtag. They are launching a website, www.ForwardFriday.us, to serve as a resource for discovering the Twitter accounts that deserve our attention.

“We have allowed loud, brash, and destructive voices to dominate our online discourse for too long,” said Betsy Mullins, president of Story Network Foundation. “It is time to lift up the people who will bring positive leadership to our next administration as our country closes the book on this sad chapter in American history.”

“The country is moving on from the Trump Administration – whether he is ready to admit it or not – and we are doing the same. We need voices of reason, expertise, and positivity to help us move forward,” said Brad Caldana, director at UniteBlue.

This Friday, and each Friday for the rest of the year, Twitter users are encouraged to follow and share the accounts of Biden Administration officials, transition team members, and outside advisors that will lead America forward under the hashtag #ForwardFriday. A list of those people can be found at www.ForwardFriday.us.
