Thunderclap.it is a tool for amplifying a petition’s outreach and impact. Users create and craft their petition, set a time in the future, then ask people to sign on through Thunderclap allowing the application to post the message (including hashtags) to their personal or organizational social media accounts. So whatever the message is, Thunderclap measures the reach by multiplying by the number of friends and followers of those who sign onto the campaign.
Here is a campaign I set up as a member of www.njpop.org to help draw attention to a protest in Newark a few summers back. The folks in the organization decided to keep it going and set a date far into the future to allow the campaign to stay active on the web site.
|There is a free version, which is functional, but numerous paid levels which offer additional features, including access to data on those who have signed onto the campaign.|
