You can defend democracy from the comfort of your sofa. Here's how: 

1. Follow us on Twitter (@SFMisinfo): It takes two seconds and makes a huge difference. The more people following us, the more the brands will sit up and listen.

2. Retweet us: If you see us calling on brands to take action, a simple retweet, quote tweet or reply will go a long way in showing the brand how many people care. 

3. Join the Hero Network: We are always looking for more people to join the campaign. Help us dismantle misinformation sites through the adverts. Sign up to the Hero Network today.

TWEETING BRANDS

(1) Be polite but firm. Ask the brand if they know they are advertising on a misinformation site and ask them to stop. 

(2) Attach a screenshot of the advert for visual proof.

(3) Make sure you tag @SFMisinfo so we can amplify your Tweet and give your call to action the greatest change of success.

An example:

Hi @BrandHandle,  you may not realise it but your adverts are helping to fund dangerous misinformation [Site Name].

Please pull your adverts, and let @SFMisinfo know.
