Fellow Twitter users: Hi, there! Its me, Larry the Twitter Bird! You may remember me hatching in front of Twitters headquarters a few months back. I called on my company to #ClickClean and power its data centers with 100% renewable energy. I also dyed my feathers green.

The New York Times article Gabe links describes Patagonias history of putting sustainability before short-term profit. Gabe seems to think Patagonia has the right idea on how businesses should be run. Well, Gabe, I agree. Its time Twitter joined Apple, Google, Facebook and other online companies in committing to power its data centers with renewable energy. Patagonia says its customers want a sustainable product. You know our users do too. Fellow Twitter users: Help Gabe and me show the rest of our colleagues that you value a green Twitter. Follow @ClickCleanBird and reply to my tweet:

Apple, Google and Facebook are already leadingthe energy sectorwith their commitments, and frankly, that ruffles my feathers. If Twitter can help topple dictatorships, surely it can convert to clean energy. Twitter colleagues, lets be the innovators we know how to be. We already have the best logo.
