Want your twitter message to get out to hundreds of people at once? Or how about getting it trending on twitter? Then take a look at Thunderclap, the new crowdspeaking platform recently set up by DeDe.
A message will be Thunderclapped if it gets a certain number of supporters by a certain date in time, determined when you create the message. The default setting is 500 supporters within seven days. Once the goal is reached, the message will be automatically re-tweeted by every person who supported your message by clicking the “Back this Message” button.
The site is partnering with notable people who have strong social media followings. Essentially, the person sends out an invite tweet (or status update or email), encouraging people to support a message and take action. This message will link them to the Thunderclap website. Currently, there is no limit to the number of Thunderclaps per day, but the company says it’s keeping it small to start so as not to crash any servers. It’ll also be measuring the effectiveness of certain Thunderclaps as it rolls out.
So what do you reckon will you be trying Thunderclap??
