Thunderclap

(a parody by Earl Chinnici)

Anyone remember the crowdspeaking app Thunderclap that allowed people to have social media users agree to send out a specific tweet or post at a specific time to help make a thing go viral? My timing was off on this one though. Very soon after I created this, Facebook blocked apps such as Thunderclap from posting and Thunderclap announced its imminent closing. Perhaps we can file this parody under nostalgia.
