Short-form debate = low quality debate

A lesson I’ve learned over the past year – debates over short-form content including tweets and pithy one-liners is low quality debate.

Short-form content tends to strip all the nuance needed to have a thoughtful conversation. So, debates on such content end up serving just one purpose – entertainment – or in case of those on the opposing side – enragement.

Avoiding this guarantees a consistent happiness boost. It also allows us to direct our attention on topics and conversations that help us learn.
