For those new to Twitter, or just looking for an idea of what to tweet, below are some sample tweets you can use:

@DrEricHoskins tax dollars are meant for patient care not private profit. Put #PatientsBeforeProfits & get a #FairContract #CarePartners

As patients deserve proper treatment, workers deserve proper pay #PatientsBeforeProfits @DrEricHoskins

No sick days, on strike for 3 months & patient care suffering. Time to give #CarePartners workers a #FairContract @DrEricHoskins
