Twitter campaign today to get the attention of John Oliver and Jon Stewart

Starting at 12pm Eastern time, there's going to be an effort on Twitter to try to get John Oliver and/or Jon Stewart to cover ME/CFS on their shows.

In 3.5 hours, keep an eye on the hashtag #JohnVsJonVsME, and like/repost the tweets. Or make your own tweets/memes.
