    Gab

    Gab is a new social network meant to be a free speech alternative/competition for Twitter.
    https://gab.ai

    Many of the members are Alt-Right people who have been banned from Twitter at various times. Twitter has an anti-Alt-Right policy, while they allow groups like ISIS to recruit over Twitter without any hesitation. There's already some major people on the platform who post on both Gab and Twitter regularly.

    Gab uses a symbol of a frog, to sync up with Pepe the Frog.

    Another dot-com startup that will crash.

    Eventually, you will learn the masses don't care. They like Twatter.

    That is not a fair assessment.

    Twitter is the only one that is pushed to the masses.

    An alternative type of "Twatter" that gets some steam, might be enough to bring Twitter down.

    Twitter is hemorrhaging money and talent currently.

    All "social media" is overvalued in the Wall Street Casino, hence, the appearance of "problems." Nonetheless, there are hundreds of millions of leftists and other fools who "tweet" daily; most, hourly.

    The likelihood of Gab effectively challenging Twatter as a free speech zone is zero. Should it actually grow influential, one of the weapons will be to simply "acquire" it by some System corporation, say, Micro$oft. And then, bye bye "hate speech."

    Freedom of thought and expression will remain a guerilla / underground activity, in this time of "universal deceit."

    Is Gab going for an IPO?

    A competent competitor to Twatter is what can easily bring down it's owner.


    They need Trump to Gab as well. Twatter would be over. I don't see it happening though. Too much risk for Trump.

    Re: Gab

    This startup has as much chance to make any dent as one trying to piss up wind into a hurricane and avoid blow back..

    But maybe this gab would be a way to bleed off the idiots..

    Feel if Trump seriously oversteps , impeachment processes would kick in.

    The majority of the population will decide, and the political critters in office if they want to keep their jobs Will turn on him.

    Amazing on the number of repubs now suddenly love Putin,

    I very well suspect more people will turn out to vote in two years to vote many asshats out of office ,

    If this insanity contues !

    All he needs to piss off enough voters that voted for change and his brand of change is not theirs .

    Tho cannot deny the intertainment value is priceless!

    Drain the swamp, hell he is establishing himself as the head gator and the swamp level never changes!
