Black Twitter, Let's Make Some Noise!

We're introducing The Chatterati, our new social media tool, and we need your help!

The Chatterati tool

(The Root) -- The Chatterati is The Root's new tool that uses a unique algorithm to highlight the tweets of some of the most influential African-American Twitter users, displaying up-to-the-minute topics, retweets and hashtags driving the conversation among blacks on the social network.

Here's where you come in. We'd like you to share a message and invite the world to be a part of this exciting digital experience.

Here's how it works: 

1. Visit Thunderclap by Monday, May 20, 2013.

2. Authorize this tweet: "We are #TheChatterati. Let's make some noise. Click to see the convo:"
3. Encourage your followers to participate by sharing on Facebook and Twitter!
If we meet our goal, our messages will be blasted to thousands of followers on May 21, 2013, at 1 p.m. EDT.

Not a Twitter user? Then just share this message on Facebook. This is a simple, easy way to show our presence to the digital world.
