If Whale and New York Times had a baby, this might be it. I really like the concept, if they can build a healthy community and attract entertaining/insightful contributors (it's hard to produce good video). Downloading this now. Will report back with impressions. 😊

@rrhoover i remember when this launched last year. It used to be editorial-created news memes. Looks like a re-boot to a UGC video community and seems like a great idea
@joshbarkin yup! We've learned a LOT!!! Iteration after iteration had lead us to this and we think we are onto something! Thanks for checking out!
@rrhoover thanks my man! We really think we got something here so it's great to see you think so too! Let's turn the tables on news and media and give the kids the power to speak up and tell the news as they see it. Love all the feedback. Helps so much...
Hi @rrhoover really interesting hunt, Congratulations! to @mrciscoadler & his team. I would love to collaborate with @mrciscoadler on this and create a chatbot for this so that it becomes available to larger audience across interfaces. @mrciscoadler let me know if we can. 😊
@vinay_jain let's connect...
Thanks for hunting us @rrhoover! Hello everyone, today we are happy to introduce Tumbleweed, a platform to speak openly and honestly about the topics that matter πŸŽ‰ I'm sure @mrciscoadler and @shaunneff will add more comments to this since we've been working really hard to make something that could truly reinvent how people consume/react to news and current events in the world. At it's very core we've aimed to create a product that gives people a voice to speak up on what matters to them and to magnify that through the power of network and our contributors, since we believe everyone deserves a voice and a chance to be heard in a cluttered information blackhole we call internet πŸ–₯ We will be around whole day, so feel free to check out the app and ask us anything, feedback is much appreciated <3

@druh_opryshok done, will shoot you a beta invite next week ;)
@arturkiulian Artur! We got something needed here. Excited to share it with the people... πŸš€
@arturkiulian can I get a beta invite too? :)
Thanks Ryan. We feel that a digital soapbox is needed in this ever changing and wild world we live in. TUMBLEWEED offers a platform with purpose to consume and discuss real topics we face everyday that effect our lives and the lives of our loved ones. As the community grows we hope this allows real conversations about real issues and let's flip the script on news and start the coversation with real people facing issues not being told another story by Anderson Cooper. Haha peace and much love PH

@snoopdogg D-o-double G...thanks my man! Let's help the youth spread the news...
Big fan of the UI and the unique concept behind Tumbleweed. I've been beta testing the app and I believe that it is very important that the power gets put into the hands of the people who are experiencing certain issues, which does not happen now in traditional news reporting. One feature that I enjoy in particular is being able to pitch your own stories directly through the app. Very excited to see how Tumbleweed continues to evolve!
