Okay, this is a thread on what The Hub can do, and why this is a must-have for anyone interested in Scottish independence (and Scottish politics in general) /1
First up, this was made in Scotland. It's also made FOR Scotland. But the biggest thing is that it's entirely controlled in Scotland. This is the movements app. There is nothing else like it. We can do what we like with The Hub /2
So why is this worth installing? It's been made for the Yes movement. It's sole reason to exist is to win independence. If that's done by sharing videos, events, or letting people know where a Yes group is, then that's what we'll do. /3
The Hub already lists over 400 groups. Over 80,000 items of content are archived on here. It's the biggest Scottish political resource around, and its all ours. So, what can it do? /4
Well, apart from looking sexy, it is very functional. It breaks things down into areas. You have a timeline, but perhaps you want your content filtered. Like popular articles or articles by groups you follow? /5
Pretty cool, eh? Those groups BTW, you can filter them too. Groups nearby, popular groups, groups based on your follow list... Just tap to follow and you'll receive notifications whenever they have something new for you /6
It's not just articles The Hub has. It also has the excellent @LesleyRiddoch and @pforpaddy podcast, as well as podcasts by @YesClacks, @TheCommonSpace and live radio by @liveIndyScot /7
Speaking of the excellent @liveIndyScot, you can watch all their livestreams in the app. Oh, and The Hub will ping a notification just before they go live. Handy! /8
Speaking of handy, The Hub's events area can also tell you what's happening in your area,with a tappable map for directions and weather updates on the day of the event itself. /9
This wouldn't be a social media app without the ability to share things you've found online. Just select The Hub from the list of apps when you share a webpage or image, write a snappy comment, and hit SHARE. Job done. /10
Remember how I said everything was able to be filtered? The quick search area let's you find things by area type too 😊
Here's @ScotNational and @PhantomPower14 group pages on The Hub. Tap to follow to get updates the moment they post anything. If you like it, say so by tapping to shar eit elsewhere. The Hub is a... Hub... Of information regarding independence. Its no use if we don't share it /12
Wait, I'm not finished! We haven't discussed fundraisers yet. You can create your own fundraisers on the app itself or it can magically import them from indiegogo. /13
This looks like a lot of information, doesn't it? How are groups meant to have the time to post stuff on The Hub? The magic of newsfeeds! Groups just enter feed locations and The Hub does the rest. Remember events? Do you have events on eventbrite? The Hub will find them for you
With all this content, what if you don't have time to read it all? Just select Save For Later then check what you've saved in My Saved Items. /15
Remember, this app is made for the movement. So if something important needs broadcast to all app users, we can do that. Administrators on the app can promote content to everybody with a simple tap. /16
Is there anything we've forgotten? Yep! Do you run a website? You might find our share button handy. Or an ability to list upcoming events? Or fundraisers?… /17
But The Hub goes even further. Our API is freely available for people to develop their own apps based on the data we have. /18…
Want to download the app? It's free on both Android and iOS. Just register a personal account to get started. Run a Yes Group? Awesome, just add it to the app if it doesn't already exist. /19
That's about it. A final reminder, this is our app, we can make it into whatever we like. So if you have suggestions, let me hear them! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 /ends
