Our Director of Social Media & Strategy joined in on the fun the first day, this is what she has to say about the newest social media app on the block,
"Threads is a new land to explore that is promoting self-expression, closer connections for brands, and thought leadership! Right now, everyone is in the same boat, learning how to use it and figuring out how it fits in their social media universe. Or should I say metaverse? My hope is that Threads will bring more vulnerable communication and connection between people and brands versus comparison and discouragement that can weave its way into our social media feeds."
