Following the News Of The World phone-hacking allegations over the past couple of days, thousands of angry consumers have risen up and spoken out against those companies that advertise in the paper, in an attempt to hit the Screws where it counts – in the pocket.
Here’s a quick recap as to what you can do if you want to join in...
* If you’re a Twitter user, you could send messages to them – here’s a simple-to-use page that allows you to send tweets to some NOTW advertisers with the greatest of ease.
* Or, if you prefer an even more personal approach, you might consider emailing senior executives at some of those companies. Click here for a PDF containing a list of email addresses. There’s also a version of the list here in an Excel file, which you could use to mail-merge if that’s your sort of thing.
* Alternatively, if you’d like to contact the Press Complaints Commission, @msjenniferjames adds that “For the form, the codes violated by #NOTW are: 3.1, 5.1, 10.1 and 16.2.”
