Bi Visibility Day could be given a second massive splash on Twitter this year with a second “Thunderclap” tweet.
An initiative of the september23.bi.org website, the thunderclap is a co-ordinated tweet with already over 100 Twitter users joining in to all post the same message at the same time on the morning of Monday 23rd September.
There is now a second thunderclap timed for the afternoon – that one will fire in the morning for internet users in the USA, Canada etc, who would mostly be asleep when the UK/ EU tweet fires.

It’s the magazine’s 18th birthday edition, having launched back in the autumn of 1995. The first edition, entitled simply “issue zero”, included a ballot paper to decide what the name should be.
