App Store Description

With all the noise on social media, it is sometimes hard to truly BE HEARD. Tumbleweed is a daily feed of real people voicing their passionate and personal points of view on the issues that face our generation. We're constantly curating the day's hot topics and pinging out leads to our ever-growing community of awesome contributors (YOU!).

- Find a story that interests you.
- Tap through a few people's opinions.
- Want to SPEAK UP? We make it easy.

Our camera faces you and only you. Your voice matters. That's why we not only let users respond with an opinion, but we also give everyone a chance to break a story in our main feed, with their thoughts providing initial context to the issue at hand.

As the opinions start gathering and collecting 100s, the most popular opinion then rolls to the forefront. All we ask is that you think about what you are about to say, because this is a place where everyone's voice is valid and valued. Be thoughtful. Be yourself. BE HEARD!
