Given a website that enables its users to debate on various topics, how would people prefer to write down and share their own opinion and argument? Would it be beneficial to constrain it like Twitter does?
I am working on a website that enables people to discuss and debate. The purpose is to provide an efficient way of tracking down the different points made by each side. This implies that users participate by entering their arguments. Obviously, I want to provide the best UX for this task. I wonder how I can tackle this issue. A first step would be to know if there is any research backing up some perticular design.
Any help focusing on a process to follow would be highly appreciated as well.
