PRESS RELEASE: SPORT IN THE LIMELIGHT ON SOCIAL
NEW YORK: The US Open was a spectacle for all sports fan that follow the finale of the Grand Slams in the calendar year. The “gold medal” if you like of the year — the final chance to capture your maiden Grand Slam, as Osaka has now achieved, or to add to your cabinet of Championships.
Undoubtedly overshadowed by the umpire, the 2018 Championship was beyond the scope of reason and arguably fair-play with Osaka’s name in “headlights” overshadowed by the drama. A reminder that not all is “fair” in this world and that the likes of sexism and equality are still at large in the sporting arena — and in the world.
The tech-space is no different. Topicthread is a social compilation with the infrastructure to disrupt the future — in more than one way. Housing sporting groups from all Summer and Winter Olympic sports, alongside alternate sports, Topicthread views sport as an important incumbent in bringing the world closer together.
Tech with a (female) scientist’s touch…
An open Topic & Thread interface — without the harassment. Social platforms are increasingly filled with distaste, no matter where you look — the US Open furore is an example of the divide on social and how a sporting Championship can unravel the behavioural norms of its users. And although arguable with the talk of decentralised platforms, the same would be said for “Schools without Teachers” — there needs to be “good” that is well-measured and keeps social a kinder place to be. And that’s what Topicthread has done with its sights set on global impact across the board — health and education, too.
