Help the nerdy teacher reach Taylor Swift

Saw this in my Twitter stream this morning – and LOVE it. Way to teach kids about re-purposing and re-mixing with respect!

This teacher’s kids want to use pop music they love for a project.  Their teacher wants them to do so legally and with respect, so he’s trying to contact the artist directly.  To get her attention (the artist is Taylor Swift), he’s asking all his Twitter PLN to re-tweet his open letter to Taylor Swift to her Twitter account, so her mentions column will be filled with the RT of his letter.  If you Tweet, please copy and paste this into Twitter:
