TinyPetition Seeks Signatures on Twitter

TPAs an opinionated bloke, I’m always one for a good debate. But what if you want to take things a step further. Say, a petition? Thanks to the creative folks at Harkness Labs, there is a new Twitter app – and it’s the first one to get me excited in several weeks.

TinyPetition lets you put together a brief petition on anything. Find a bug in your food at the local taco joint? Ask people to boycott! Think David Letterman made an offensive joke? Rally the troops on Twitter! Favorite show get canceled? Bring it back by collecting digital signatures.

Each TinyPetition is created as a unique URL which can be shared across social networking sites – or simply sent to friends.

I’m willing to bet politicos will jump all over this Twitter app as well.

Currently there are 19 petitions with over 5,000 signatures.

Get to know the system by signing my petition to eliminate Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt from the limelight.

The only feature on the site I did not love is that when it asked if I wanted to Tweet my TinyPetition link, I was not given a chance to make any changes/additions to the Tweet.
