Exodus to Gab

Alternative to big tech censorship

January 13, 2021  0

The flight from Twitter has begun, propelled by the tech goliath banning President Trump from its platform and intensifying its censorship of conservatives. With Facebook, Instagram and YouTube also censoring the President (along with conservatives) and Amazon ousting social media alternative Parler, people are flooding to Gab.

Andrew Torba, the CEO of Gab is a "Christian, husband, father and patriotic American." In a recent interview, he explained what the platform is all about.

The more Twitter and the rest of the Silicon Valley technocrats crack down, the faster people are jumping ship for Gab. In the past four days of Gab growth, the platform has had 51 million visits, 91 million page views and has added 1.7 million new users. And the exodus is not limited to social media users.

Torba reports that thousands of big tech employees are fed up with the shenanigans. He recently commented, "There are so many people — including senior-level — inside of Silicon Valley firms who are reaching out to me looking for a job right now. And I'm hearing chatter from inside of these companies from some of my sources that it's an internal civil war."

As to what's playing out with big tech's censorship in overdrive, Michael Hichborn of Lepanto Institute weighed in: 

The First Amendment of the Constitution protects citizens from government infringement on the right to free speech. So big tech found an end-around. Through a coordinated effort, tech giants like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Stripe, Amazon, have created a network monopoly for the free market. And if you don't follow their ideological standards, you'll have your websites repressed by search engines, removed from servers, unable to collect funds and suspended from popular social media platforms. If conservative-minded companies and individuals do not quickly pool their resources to create a free and open alternative, the technocratic KGB will crush all who do not fall in line.

With Democrats greenlighting big tech's attack on social media, free speech seems to hinge on the success of alternative platforms like Gab.
