Siren ThunderclapTo promote the imminent ONLINE RELEASE of SIREN on Friday 27 May we are running a Thunderclap campaign.

Thunderclap is a sort of “crowdspeaking” platform which means people pledge their support by donating a tweet and/or facebook status, something that is completely free and doesn’t cost anyone a penny!

“I support the online release of Siren #ShortFilm #LGBT #IndieFilm #SirenOnlineRelease – Go watch it now for free:”

As its a difficult to thing to explain here are a couple of FAQ’a below, more can be read here.

What is Thunderclap?
Thunderclap is a tool that lets a message be heard when you and your friends say it together. Think of it as an “online flash mob.” Join a Thunderclap, and you and others will share the same message at the same time, spreading an idea through Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr that cannot be ignored.

What exactly am I agreeing to when I authorize my Facebook or Twitter account?
You’re allowing Thunderclap to share a single message on your behalf. This is only the case when you click the button on the campaign page to support with Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. After the campaign is complete, we won’t post any additional messages.
