Discord is a chat app built to create communities of like-minded people, who want to connect over shared passions and enthusiasms.
Launched in 2015, the app quickly grew traction in the gaming industry and with streamers, as it became the go-to second screen for e-sports and gamers.
HOW TO USE IT
Anyone can join or launch their own chat room – or ‘servers’ as they’re called within Discord – and start inviting people to chat. Fans can also use hashtags to search and find topics of interest.
Unlike other social networks, Discord prides itself on enabling a ‘safe’ place to chat – the platform allows moderators (Mods) to set verification and strict moderation tools so the community will be safe and free from trolling, abuse and online hatred.
Discord is also unique in that it is powered by its users, and that’s what we hope United’s Discord community will also be – for the fans, by the fans.
