Stop and Think started this petition to Politicians and Twitter

Do you want to go to war because of a tweet? Are you proud of our politicians who are constantly attacking each other on twitter for the whole world to see? Politicians and their use of Twitter is leading to an escalation of events that affect ALL the American people in a negative way. It is also leading to tremendous volatility in financial markets. It is causing undue stress for Americans and leading the country into situations a little thought and care with words would have avoided.  It is not just one person or one party. I propose a stop and think act. Basically all tweets from politicians will not be posted until 24 hours after the politician creates them. That gives them time to “stop and think.” This would eliminate “in the heat of the moment” tweets and the constant bickering we are seeing amongst parties as the delay would help to fizzle arguments. Twitter would need to add a time delay stop to politicians accounts. For an example of escalation on twitter,  view tweets from the weekend of Jan 3rd.  Our country is greatly divided and this is being fueled by politicians and their rhetoric. This is both sides and it needs to stop. They need a time out. Our children should not have to pay the price of a spur of the moment, heated tweet
