It’s been really fun to watch Gab.ai, the social network for free speech, grow since its inception. Beginning when Twitter banned journalist Milo Yiannopolous, it was great to see someone taking action and standing up to the silicon valley elite, banning people from platforms for political speech — even talking about movies is apparently a bannable offense if it’s the wrong movie!
Over the course of the last year, I’ve watched Gab grow from a handful of people, to more than 200,000 of all races, religions, creeds and even countries.
It’s been fabulous for me. I’ve made so many great friends who have been super supportive, including people on the Gab team themselves, of which I treasure to this day. It’s been a great service.
Now here’s what’s happened: Gab put out a call for investments and they raised more than a million dollars from the people out there — not from big venture capital, but from people on the internet who just want free speech to grow. In the wake of Big Tech going crazy and trying to shut people out of having a voice, raising money, anything, this is a huge deal. It shows there’s a market for freedom, and that people want the ability to speak.
You can invest here still, I believe. Might want to get some shares before there are none: https://www.startengine.com/startup/gab
Otherwise, head onto http://gab.ai and start gabbing with the rest of us!
