Have you heard of Thunderclap? By which I mean not the natural phenomenon nor the band, but the social media variety? The one that allows you to bring together 100s of supporters all at the same time to hold a virtual loudhailer to a message you want to share on Twitter or Facebook?
Well, it’s awesome. It really is. The possibilities are mind-blowing!
Here’s the gen.
Thunderclap is a new ‘crowd-speaking’ platform that allows you to donate a Tweet or Facebook message to an artist’s project… like for example a book launch. Like, for example, my upcoming launch of Fairy Tale in New York. If you pledge, the message is let loose on social media all at the same time. It’s completely safe, it’s not spam, and it will automatically post just one message on your behalf, just once. Like, for example, this one I made for Fairy Tale in New York.
I got lift off!
For a Thunderclap to go ahead, you need a minimum of 100 supporters. And I’m ecstatically pleased to report that my Thunderclap campaign for Fairy Tale in New York has lift off!
