Free Speech, Twitter alternative Gab is growing rapidly


Gab logo

In just two weeks since its beta launch, free speech Twitter alternative Gab has already accumulated a waiting list of over thirty-thousand people looking to get onto the platform.

The platform, which is currently accepting users in waves, has also received over 1,300,000 views, while over 120,000 posts have been made on the social network within the past two weeks.

“The response to Gab from around the world has been nothing short of incredible,” Gab CEO Andrew Torba told Breitbart Tech.

“This is a movement, and something that the community is driving forward,” he explained. “Folks are deleting their Twitter and Facebook accounts, or pledging to do so right after the election. They are waking up to the lies and censorship of Big Social. We will continue to build a product built by the people, for the people. We will continue to put people first and promote free speech for all.”

Numerous media professionals and public figures have joined Gab since its conception two weeks ago, and the social network currently boasts such users as InfoWars’ Paul Joseph Watson…

“If I had to pick a single event that pushed me over the edge to take action, I would have to say it was the suppression of conservative sources and stories by the incredibly biased Facebook Trending Topics team,” said Gab CEO Andrew Torba in an interview withBreitbart Tech last week.

You can sign up for a place on Gab’s waiting list here, and if are already on Gab you can follow me here.

Perhaps we could get the hashtag #GabNZ trending.

    • Intrigued

      I signed up yesterday and was 31,000 and something – can’t remember exact number. I never did Twitter. Loathe Facebook – was a late adopter and am only on it to connect with friends and family and never comment on political stuff. A whole new world awaits on Gab. Looking forward to it!

    With the myriad of social media now available, I’d be curious to know how much time it has taken away from the normal daily household chores and the impact on productivity in general.

    • Dog Breath

      I think we all know the answer, lots.

    Gab is going to *explode* in popularity!
    Why? Because the left won’t have any answers to the views in it and some lefties will even see how hollow leftist ideology is.
    All the left will be able to do is abuse and whine.

      “All the left will be able to do is abuse and whine.”

      Thats what they do already!

  • cows4me

    The kids finally convinced me to buy a smart phone so I guess I’ll have to sign up at some stage but I’m not sure how many are interested in cows.

    • hookerphil

      No bull

      • cows4me

        Probably be plenty of that.

        • sandalwood789

          I did a quick search on Flickr. It has over 1.7 million photos of cows. ( They *are* nice, the way that they sleepily look at you with their soft eyes while chewing their cud… )

    Sorry I don’t remember. On Gab there is censorship but it is self-censorship which means you only view what you want to view. You can mute unwanted voices and you can make sure you are not shown gabs containing any words you don’t want to see.

    There is no excuse for being offended as the experience is controlled by the viewer.It is the ultimate in free speech.Others do not get to dictate what is ethical, moral or politically correct. You do.

    Recently some SJW’s complained about a post on a hunting site for women that had photos of her and the animals she had shot. What on earth were they doing on the site? They were looking to be offended.

    Gab is still being built so not everything they have planned is live yet.I highly recommend it.
    Edit: They do have some hard rules of course re illegal acts pedophillia terrorism inciting violence and murder etc

      Sounds promising, can’t wait to try it.

    Paul Joseph Watson is great! He’s done some really good videos on YouTube – well worth seeing. He is one of the wonderful group of young up-and-coming conservative commentators – Milo Y is another.

    • spanishbride

      Yes and both have moved to Gab. Milo was kicked off twitter and Paul Joseph Watson knows it is just a matter of time before they find an excuse to remove him as well.

        Twitter is the dinosaur, Gab is the mammal. We know how that story ends…… :)

      I’m a bit curious to know what illegal pornography is? Sure it depends on the jurisdiction, or is it any pornography?
