Free speech social media site Gab.com, which has been completely de-platformed from all Silicon Valley business infrastructure, to the point of having the founder’s wife’s Visa card cancelled, has called out the social media site Parler for caving to big tech and ending free speech.
You can read Gab CEO Andrew Torba’s comments below on the situation.
Today Apple announced that they would be allowing Establishment Oligarch-owned Parler back on the Apple App Store. This comes after Parler ousted their pro-free speech CEO and Founder John Matze, who claims that his 40% stake in the company was stolen from him. After removing Matze Parler implemented a “troll filter” to censor “trolling content,” whatever that means.
Bloomberg reported that Parler is working with third-party artificial intelligence software company Hive to automatically censor and remove content that Apple doesn’t like. Hive works with other Big Tech companies like Reddit to leverage artificial intelligence to censor content at scale.
