Taking the Singapore Pledge at 8:22 pm (1222 UTC) on August 9th 2009


Happy National Day! Here’s the pledge which we can recite at 8:22 pm – the time is chosen because that is when the parade reaches it’s conclusion.


We, the citizens of Singapore
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society,
based on justice and equality,
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.

Now, trying twiting that in 140 chars. It contains 38 words and 241 characters.

Here’s my attempt:

    how to credit this to u if you’ve already max it out? lolx šŸ™‚

    1. You are entitled to your MS viewpoint. Viewpoints are one thing, their corporate actions and business ethics speak for themselves.
      No need for credit on the 140char pledge twit.
