The world needs more shouting debate

This is Debubble, a publishing tool that facilitates a debate between two Twitter users.

Challenge

Debubble will let you start a debate. Other users can then challenge your opening arguments. If you accept a challenge, you and your opponent will be able to engage in a public but distraction-free conversation. Debubble will make sure you wait for your turn before you can deliver your arguments. It will also limit each response to 1500 characters (roughly one page) and the entire debate to 12 turns. Instead of cheering for their side like sports fans, users will be able to signal the value they got from your conversation by starring the whole debate.

Why is it so hard to have a debate on Twitter?

I

Twitter is the modern-day Agora, where we all gather to debate important issues.
But whenever I make a claim on Twitter, it feels like I am debating with a mob.

II

The short format of Twitter allows for a faster, more succinct communication.
But context is often lost and then incorrectly inferred. Twitter is one big misunderstanding.

III

By following, liking and retweeting, the masses can propagate the message they agree with.
But this creates filter bubbles where only one side is properly heard.

Why Debubble?
