Sending Thnks on Twitter

Thnks was built to help business professionals strengthen their relationships with thoughtful, instant gestures of appreciation. Similarly, Twitter was created to connect people all around the globe, especially those with common interests.

With over 330 million monthly active users globally and over 69 million of those being located in the US, Twitter has attracted business professionals in every industry to their platform.

We see them interacting with one another every day.

From retweeting their business idol’s advice…

To sharing photos of their recent travels…

To the occasional Twitter debate…

To sharing their exciting moments…

The list goes on.

Now imagine if…. instead of simply liking your client’s vacation photo, you could send them an Uber ride home from the airport?

Instead of just commenting on your colleague’s new baby with a congrats post, you could send them your favorite baby book too?

And for rest of us that use Twitter more than any other platform to communicate and stay connected, what better medium to receive a gift?

Thnks is making it as easy as possible to send gifts from anywhere, to anyone! Our new Twitter integration is a key step in making Thnks ubiquitous across all platforms you interact with other business professionals.

How does it work?

On the Thnks Web Platform or mobile app on iOS or Android:

  1. Select a gift
  2. Choose your contact – Click on the Twitter tab, connect your account, and then type in the Twitter contact you want to send a gift to (by name or Twitter handle)
  3. Write your message and send!

How do recipients receive and redeem their gift?

Your gift will be sent instantly to your recipient as a Twitter DM. It will appear with your message and the link to the gift you choose. Recipients can accept their gift straight from the link, or pass the gift value to charity if they prefer.

Key Use Cases

Use Twitter as a contextual tool to give you ideas of what to send! Ex: Did they tweet about having a busy schedule, a book they want to read, a recent life update, their favorite sports teams?

Uber Ride

“I saw you were visiting NYC and the city is due for some rough weather….hope this helps get you around, and enjoy your time in the Big Apple!

Starbucks Week of Coffee

“Congrats on your promotion! Sad to see you leave NYC, but can’t wait to watch you kill it in LA! Here’s a week of coffee to keep you fueled for the move.”

Fanchest Gear

“Amazing upset of the Aggies. Go Buckeyes! Fan gear to celebrate the big win!”
