AFTINET is running our first social media ‘Thunderclap’!

A Thunderclap is when social media users sign up in advance to post a specific message using either their Twitter or their Facebook accounts on behalf of an organisation (in this case, AFTINET). Then, at the same time, on the same day, the message is automatically posted to everyone’s account and creates a storm of social media activity around a specific issue.
