Opinions, especially on Twitter, are known for their strongly opinionated, outraged, and often clickbait snapshots of a situation. Partially due to the design and character limit, the platform has a public reputation for lacking nuanced and level-headed conversation and has been shown to contribute to anxiety, polarization, and vitriol among its users.
But this isn’t all that the platform is, and it shouldn’t be the front page of what is visible.
Our project is designed to shift discourse on the internet in a more nuanced, positive, solutions-oriented way. We input a tweet we're interested in and search for tweets on similar topics with a positive and nuanced approach.
Our goal is to help facilitate thoughtful and reasoned digital discussions which can then help people collectively search for solutions to global issues.
