I accidentally came across ThunderClap today, as it was linked from my home page on Firefox. I thought the link was to take me to an info page on the soon to be released Firefox OS.
This sounds like a very valuable tool, in the social media World.
I am keen to keep an eye on it, and I am sure that my participation will be shown in the Twitter feed

Who’s using it?
From passionate individuals with a message to share, to organizations such as The White House, Levis and the United Nations.
Re Firefox OS, I hope it is a secure private alternative to Android and Apple.
All of the everyday apps and functions look to be available, and coming from the Mozilla stable I suspect it will be secure. I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s like, and hoping my old Nexus1 will be able to run it easily… if not there’s always the N7.
However, I have read nothing that tells me it will be more secure, or able to install it on another none Firefox handset… if anything I am quite cautious of the big corporate lables that seem to be partners e.g. FaceBook,EA
What is Firefox OS?
Backed by some of the biggest names in the industry, Firefox OS is a new open operating system for smartphones developed by Mozilla. Built entirely using HTML5 and other open Web standards, Firefox OS is free from the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms.
How is Firefox OS different from other operating systems?
Firefox OS is the only operating system with Adaptive App Search. While every other phone today is static, giving you the exact same apps each time you turn it on, Firefox OS is always changing to offer exactly the apps you need at any moment in your life. It adapts so you can live every moment to its fullest.
Firefox OS is brought to you by Mozilla, a global nonprofit organization that emphasizes principle over profit. We believe that the Web is a shared public resource to be cared for, not a commodity to be sold. We work with a worldwide community to create open source products like Mozilla Firefox and to innovate for the benefit of the individual and the betterment of the Web. The result is great products built by passionate people and better choices for everyone.
