Michael Moore is reaching out to his fans for links to great stories, important ideas and crazy stuff off the internet. 

In a recent newsletter blast, the "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Capitalism: A Love Story" director announced that he wants links to your favorite articles to post on his Twitter and Facebook pages. Here's what he had to say:

People every day send me links to things -- to great stories, important ideas, worthy organizations, and just some craaaazy stuff that cracks me up. Occasionally I will put these links on my Facebook page or my Twitter feed -- and, in a matter of seconds, these links will suddenly reach a large worldwide audience. I have over one million very close Facebook friends, and nearly two million Twitter followers. 

Lately, I've been thinking, why don't I actually provide a conduit for those of you who every day find things in the news or on the internet and then say to yourself, "Wow -- EVERYONE should read this!" You may have 200 people on your Twitter or Facebook, or maybe two thousand -- but what if I offered you the chance to share those links of cool or important things you find with two million people? Perhaps you've found a hilarious video or a link to someone who has uncovered some serious wrongdoing and you're thinking to yourself, "More people should know about this!" 

So here's what I'm going to do. If you read a story that you feel deserves a wider audience (and I agree), then I'll put it up on my Twitter feed and Facebook page. 

So, if you've read something today (or any day) that you think a few million others should see, just send the link to me hereThey can be from the New York Times or the Bedford Falls Gazette – the more the story is being ignored, the more I want to share it on my social media feeds
