All the political ideologues claim they want to protect free speech. Well now’s the time to put their money where their mouth is.
Twitter’s a dumpster fire.
So allow me to introduce you to new kind of free speech platform: Bitcher.
Clearly I haven’t worked out all the kinks yet. Nor have I set up a website. Any Big Tech billionaire can take (or steal, if you prefer) this idea.
But here’s the general concept:
-For every Bitch (equivalent to a “Tweet”), there is NO character MAXIMUM. Only a character MINIMUM (which would greatly exceed the character maximum on Twitter). The idea being that participants MUST present a well reasoned Bitch. If any poster tries to cheat the system by circumventing the character minimum (i.e by stringing together random words and letters, or by typing something like “penis penis penis,” etc) then that Bitch will be flagged and removed and the poster will be suspended for a brief period.
-Each Bitch must have at least ONE hyperlink to an external source that is relevant to its subject. To submit a reply, the poster MUST click on the link. Replies don’t have to provide links, but must meet the character minimum.
-If a reply also presents an external link that’s relevant to the subject, the OP MUST respond within a given timeframe (ex: 48 hours). If there are an excessive amount of replies that fit this criteria, a minimum amount of replies from the OP will be set (ex: 5). Failure from the OP to reply will result in a temporary suspension.
-Name calling and obscene language ARE permitted. (Terroristic threatening and harassment are not)
-It will be highly encouraged on the platform to belittle and name call any politico on Twitter that has yet to join Bitcher (within the bounds of reason, of course). If they are interested in free speech, then they should have the courage to join Bitcher.
-It is my belief that the format of Twitter encourages snark, sarcasm, dunking, and just general stupidity with its character limitations. By setting a high character MINIMUM, hopefully this will minimize the effectiveness of those acts by FORCING the participant to engage thoroughly.
So you want free speech? Here’s your chance:
Bitcher: Where Free Speech is MANDATORY
3 thoughts on ““bitcher”: where free speach is MANDATORY”
I’m in! I have a foul mouth, which I often employ to compensate – much to my detriment – for my overall inability to think quickly enough on my feet to come up with articulate, dependable arguments. It’s just easier to call someone a fucking asshole, or tell them to go fuck themselves, than to come up with a reasoned response.
Accordingly, Twitter keeps warning me about my quick- tempered responses, essentially cutting me off at the knees and forcing me to delete my posts.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m ALL for that. Except on Bitcher, ppl will have to expand their insults into a 750 word response.
I just think it’s funny to make people perpetually do homework. Just need to get some tech bro on board.
