Mother Jones to Andrew Torba of Gab: “I’d appreciate if you could grant me access to Gab so that I can observe and interact with the alt-right. I’d be interested in interviewing you about your motivations for creating Gab.”
Andrew Torba: “Wait your two weeks. We don’t interview with fake news sites.”
We don’t need them. We don’t need to genuflect to them, accommodate them, or even talk to them.
I’ve been on Twitter since 2009. I have 26,900 followers there. I’ve been on Gab for about four months. I have 11,579 followers there. At this rate of relative growth, I may not have any more reason to bother with Twitter than with MySpace within a year.
