What is a Thunderclap?

Thunderclap is the first crow-speaking platform that helps people and organisations to be heard by a larger audience by saying something together. People use their Facebook, Twitter or Tumbler accounts to sign up and support the Thunderclaps – authorising the service to post a one-off message at the set time via their social media accounts.

For each Thunderclap to take place we need the support of 100 supporters (our minimum supporter goal), once we achieve this level of support Thunderclap will release the post at the allocated time using their profiles, enabling the message to be amplified on these social media platforms.

“Thunderclap makes going viral possible by leveraging your network to support and amplify your cause at the exact moment you want your message shared. The result? A thunderous virtual standing ovation.”

-Aliza Licht, SVP, Global Communications, Donna Karan International
