How can nonprofits get started on Threads?

Since I recorded Part 1, new data indicates the app has already achieved one-fifth of the weekly active user base of Twitter worldwide and 86 times the weekly active user base of the largest Twitter rival in the U.S, Truth Social, which had a weekly active user base of 1 million as of last week.

The app has now achieved over 150 million downloads according to app intelligence firm

What this means for nonprofits is hard to say, but it’s definitely worth exploring the new app as part of your overall content strategy - something I am teaching in my new live training on July 31st.

So how do you get started? That's what I cover in this special bonus episode.
