Thunderclap SPUD!

What is Thunderclap?

Thunderclap is "the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be it rises above the noise of your social networks."

Basically, Thunderclap is a service that allows multiple people to agree to post a single social media message simultaneously. With enough support, this can give the message "trending" status, gaining even more exposure. It's free to participate in any campaign.  Speaking of campaigns...


Support the SPUD Thunderclap campaign!

Help us get the word out about our Kickstarter launch! We're getting as many people as we can to send out a message about SPUD on launch day, and your help would be great! The whole process only requires a few clicks and should take you less than a minute.

4. Log in to your social media account by clicking the "Continue" button.


5. Give Thunderclap permission to post the message. Note that this will only give them permission to post this one time.  If it gives you the option, make sure the visibility is set to "Public" to maximize the number of people who see it.
