Did the power of online petitions change Verizon’s mind?
How do you stop the #2 wireless provider from instating a new fee? Get to the internet and start a petition – so says the social media crowd.
I’m just not sure how much of a difference the change.org petition started by Molly Katchpole did, but some are crediting her and change.com with changing big bad Verizon’s mind. I question the amount of clout she and change.com have; the thing that may have pushed Verizon towards removing the evil $2 “pay to pay” fee may have been the FCC saying they’d “look into the issue”. This is almost always bad news for a new evil fee.
Nevertheless, the internet is accrediting change.org and Katchpole, whom – by the way – collected over 50,000 signatures in little more than a few hours, with thwarting a disaster.
