The number used to be 25,000 signatures

The White House recently increased the number of signatures needed on its "We the People" petition site from 25,000 to 100,000.

"We the People" is a website where users can create and apply online signatures to petitions. When the number of signatures on a petition exceeded 25,000, it will receive a comment from the White House.

When the site launched in 2011, only 5,000 signatures were needed. As the number of users grew, the number was raised to 25,000. Now, the site has grown even more and 100,000 is the new number to beat.

However, any petitions that were existing before the new 100,000 rule will remain under the 25,000 signature rule. As of right now, there are a little under 40 petitions that have passed the 25,000 signature mark.

Awesome idea!

On that note, this whole idea is a joke and is just an attempt PR.

The is the same thing as those commercials with the local news team playing softball, visiting the hospital and kissing babies while the tag line is "We care!". (We even had one local TV station change their call letters to KARE...puke.)
