What is SegWit2x and how could it affect Bitcoin?

A majority of miners have started showing their preference for SegWit2x, a version of Segregated Witness that's deviating from what Core developers envision to be the solution to bitcoin's scaling issue. But what is it and what's leading bitcoin to it?
