How can we further coordinate our action on this? Reward people who tweet?

If I ran an EA charity, I would definitely spend the hour to create a Twitter account and reply, earning a nontrivial chance to introduce my organization to one of the richest people in the world.

(It is a great idea but not quite in the spirit of the thing I was about to share. lol)
