Internet-savvy types know that teen heartthrob Justin Bieber pretty much rules the web. Just last week, rumor spread that Bieber’s fan base was so active on Twitter that the microblogging website has servers dedicated just to him. Twitter didn’t confirm, but they didn’t deny it, either.
The takeaway? If you’re trying to get a message to go viral, your success rate will surely be higher if you can somehow tie-in the Biebs.
So that’s just what Campus Progress, the college spinoff of the Center for American Progress, decided to do to get people to vote in the midterms.
The organization is highlighting a submission to its VoteAgain2010 video contest that argues, while Bieber can’t vote in our midterms (he’s both too young and too Canadian), shouldn’t you?
