threadsy will be shutting down on November 2, 2011
SAN FRANCISCO, October 2011
Dear threadsy Community,
With sadness, we announce today that we will be shutting down threadsy on November 2, 2011.
threadsy is the world’s first truly integrated communication client. We gained traction swiftly among an enthusiastic community of users who enjoyed using threadsy to pull together their busy online social lives into a simple, enjoyable experience. More than just collecting email and the broader social web in one place, we helped our users organize multiple communication streams and quickly get deep context on the people with whom they communicate at just the right moment.
Our entire team has been extremely excited about and proud of threadsy since it started as just the seed of an idea back in 2008. From the start, we have been equally honored to serve a community of threadsy users who were not only loyal and passionate, but also creative and thoughtful, constantly bringing us fresh ideas about how to continually improve the user experience for everyone.
As enthusiastic as our team is about threadsy, the economics behind the application are challenging, and ultimately, we did not gain users quickly enough to justify continued investment. We hope to have the chance to work on threasdsy again someday.
In the meantime, we’ve shifted gears to work on a big, new opportunity that we are extremely excited about. We’re looking forward to telling you more about that soon.
We hope you have enjoyed using threadsy as much as we’ve loved bringing it to you!
Still interested in leveraging the threadsy technology and assets? Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
