8 ways to go from a good to a GREAT virtual Threads community member

Remember being this close you could touch cups?
  1. If you wouldn’t do it in person, don’t do it virtually
  2. Cameras on for video- or it’s a poor-quality phone call (in which case, call them- see number 7)

8 ways to be an (even) better Threads community member

1. Be present visually & mentally

An example of appropriate messaging! And yes we really do ❤

2. Check the inner keyboard warrior

3. Inclusion by design

4. Expressions don’t always express what you hoped for

5. Space out so you don’t zone out

This woman is having THE BEST time on her telephone

6. Bring back the phone call

Slack lets you change your status whenever you want

7. Be good to yourself- switch off the notifications

WhatsApp and Slack also give you the option to change you Avatar

8. Assume positive intent

A good example of appropriate office messaging, and yes its true, we like you too ❤, you’re awesome
