Looks like Comms are open again on GAB

What’s even more impressive is he did this while traffic was up 700% and under attack from leftists. Gab is currently having servers upgraded to handle the large influx in traffic but we’re told it should stabilize soon.

Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms

I tried getting on GAB a couple days ago and sign up but the servers were bogged down. I guess they’re working on increasing capabilities

Gab’ CEO Pulls Off The Impossible For Trump...Completely Backed Up President Trump’s Twitter Account Before Deleted And Recreated Him On ‘Gab’
Gab CEO completely backed up President Trump’s Twitter account before it was deleted and recreated him on Gab.

President Trump’s new account: https://gab.com/realdonaldtrump


Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms, as previously reported by 100% FED UP.

Torba previously revealed that Gab’s traffic exploded as high as 753 percent after Trump and many other conservatives have been purged from Twitter, Facebook, and other big tech platforms.

“Our traffic is up 753% in the past 24 hours. Tens of millions of visits,” Gab said in response to slow loading speeds on the platform.

To meet the rising demand, Gab said it would add ten new servers to its platform to alleviate congestion.

Gab started as the first free speech alternative to Twitter. Gab allows all legal speech except for pornography. Users can curate their own experience on Gab by creating custom filters. Gab also takes a hard stance against illegal content and incitement of violence.

Due to its free speech policy, Google and Apple have banned the Gab app from their app stores.


The two tech giants recently banned Parler from their app stores. Amazon Web Services also suspended their servicing of Parler, citing allegedly “insufficient content moderation practices.”

Gab has worked to become resilient from suppression from tech companies that no longer wish to host its domain. For instance, Gab hosts its own physical services to avoid censorship from cloud servicing companies such as Amazon Web Services.

The free speech company is also reportedly working on a Gab phone to circumvent app store censorship and spur competition in the mobile phone operating system markets.

“The solution, as always, is not government,” Gab wrote this week. “It is to build your won. People mock this meme, but Gab lives it. While others whine, we build.”

This is a developing story.

I listened to the CEO of Gab being interviewed. i was impressed but we will see how Gab plays out. Good for him for backing up the President. He said he has been preparing for 5 years for the great exodus from other platforms. I guess it’s to be expected there would be issues during the transition.

NICE TO HAVE FRIENDS.
Especially when the “fair weather” ones are bailing in droves and you find a real friend you didn’t even know you had, quietly working to support you.
Historically, some such friends have unexpectedly been rewarded much later by people they helped who have long memories and deep pockets. Its never the ones who sought such a reward for their favor though, IIRC.

I don't know about Apple, but if he makes the apk file available Android users can sideload it.

I think I can...
FWIW, there's an article on Newsmax saying that Trump never joined Gab or Parler because Kushner advised against it.

Gab is working much better today. Still slow at times but you can get on.

A lot of new people pushing a Trump coin. Lot's of people claiming to be Trump people. Gen Flynn, Don Trump Jr. It is annoying as hell but with all the Twitter exiles it was bound to happen.
