    The Filters and Categories make discovery simple and fun

    Cons:ย 

    None

    Wow what perfect timing for a tool like this to emerge. As Twitter struggles with issues of resonant echo chambers, we now have a way to listen to diverse opinions and hear other's struggles. I've been using the product and have already followed many more folks to open up my mind to interesting new perspectives! Well done Toni!

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello Product Hunt! After months of hard work, I finally got to shipping what is likely my most ambitious and meaningful product so far. Let me give you a recap of how it all came to be... ๐Ÿ‘ป Diving deep into Twitter, and uncovering one of its worst issues As a frequent Twitter user, I tend to look through all ins and outs of the platform to make the most out of it. One of my biggest problems within the social network is finding new people (that's likely why I follow so few), so I tend to browse through Who to follow quite a lot, which sometimes shows me some really interesting people (not the case most of the time, though...). Just 6 months ago, while having a peek at the users recommended by Twitter, a random thought sparkled in me. "How many women do I follow?". I had a look, and surprisingly enough, it was a minority. As a woman myself that frustrated me a lot, how had I not realized it before? What about PoC, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+, from low-income backgrounds, different parts of the world... Nothing. Just an homogeneous list of people, that somehow came to be. I dug deep into the reason why this happened in the first place, as a person who cares about this issues, and it was when I attempted to follow more diverse people when I realized I could not. I could not because I didn't know them, I couldn't look them up, only highly accomplished people showed up. I checked in Who to follow which proved the same to me. Although the users were suggested to me based on the language, location and interests, other than those 3 they were pretty arbitrary, and because of that, minorities were simply invisible. ๐ŸŽ’ My journey begins After that, everything just fell into place. I had a problem in mind, and as a problem-solver, it was only right for me to try to find a solution and develop it. Being a designer at heart, I begun by making several concepts of the platform, and in fact I made so many that my canvas ended up looking like this (in Figma, which is a super cool tool!): In terms of the development, it was tough. Errors everywhere, the website didn't look anything like the design (dang it, CSS), but in the end I managed to fix everything (I hope), tidy it up, and... ๐Ÿš€...Launch! Well, not really. I created a Telegram group just a week before launching here, posted a link in Twitter, and a bunch of awesome people joined, giving lots of super valuable insight into what I was building, and making me aware of many mistakes I had overlooked. In the end it seems like I did the most work this past week thanks to their feedback, and it led to such an awesome product. ๐Ÿ”ฎ What's next? After seeing the ๐Ÿ’œ my platform got in Twitter, the Telegram group and among people I privately shared it with during its development, I think that the website certainly has potential to grow and to make our Twitter feeds much more diverse. It has also encouraged me to attempt to build a community out of it, by expanding the Telegram group & talking about diversity in general, meeting other Twitter users and running the platform together, with feedback, because I realized that is absolutely necessary and extremely helpful. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜˜

@marie_dm_ @marie_dm_ Thank you Marie! I managed to put it together and launch it in part because of you, the WM community and a lot of different people I've met over the past months. So thank you for that! ^^

I've been watching Toni build Twiverse for months and I'm so impressed with how it turned out. This product is such a great example of what can result from a long period of dedication, instead of the quick launches that have been happening more recently (which I am guilty of). As a female in tech, I am always looking for other diverse individuals as Twitter can end up being an echo chamber. I am SO excited to see this platform grow. ๐Ÿ™Œ

I love this concept. In your execution of it, it shows that it's something you're passionate about. The landing page is solid. There's a lot of information to take in, yet you've made it easily navigable, and not at all overwhelming. Currently, this is the best way I've seen, to discover who to follow based on particular backgrounds and interests. Great work, looking forward to see how this grows!

@leandro8209 Oh my gosh, thank you so much, it's comments like yours that really make my day ๐Ÿ˜ I did spend months looking into every single detail of the site to make it as useful as possible, going even beyond my own expectations by implementing a complex referral system with unlockable flairs and other perks. And yep, I don't think there's any other site that lets you find Twitter users with so many filters haha ๐Ÿ˜‹
