Union members from the New York Times are taking to twitter to “engage the public” during their contract battle with Times management, according to JimRomenesko.com. A memo sent by the “Mobilization Committee” to its members said, “we hope to use the power of social media to get our message out to the world. Many of you have large and devoted twitter followings, and we would like to utilize that resource in order to engage the public. We have crafted a simple tweet that we’d like you to put on your feed several times tomorrow.”  The tweet crafted by the committee is, “Retweet this to show support for @nytimes journalists & staff who are fighting wage and benefit cuts #saveourtimes.”
