Hi, I'm Daniel, founder of Thread.
Not too long ago, I sat down and thought about what the biggest problem our technology-native generation was facing. It was right in front of me, buzzing away on my phone.
I believe current social media and social networks are built in a way that harms our ability to meaningfully connect with one another. They're highly addictive, superficial, and socially isolating. They also run a reputation of violating user privacy and selling it to third parties.
I strongly believe in ad-free, private social networking as a path forward. I also believe in revenue transparency. I learned early on that it's better to explicitly pay for the products and services that you love. Thread is no different. However we choose to make money, it will always be because we are delivering more value to you.
I would love to hear your feedback about what we're building.
