Special Features

Home Screen

Every headline provides three articles from three various sources. One from a conservative, a liberal, and a neutral platform. Without signaling which is which, this allows readers to form their own opinions.


Preset profile pictures and randomized usernames preserve anonymity. The lack of identifying details helps to reinforce a bias-free and safe space for discussion.

New Topic Templates

Templates create a safer environment for the user and keeps discussions open, framing each discussion as a question and not as a statement.
