Gab.com Embraces Censorship By Deleting Parody Account

At the time of this writing, Gab.com criticism and parody account AndyTurbo has vanished with its user page returning a 404 error. That account, parodying Andrew Torba the Gab.com CEO, offered pointed criticism of Gab.com’s “free speech with an expanding list of exceptions” policy and often attacked Torba itself.

While none will claim that this account was in good taste, it was not fully in bad taste either, and raised some important objections to the ongoing Gab.com descent into censorship. I have reached out to the person I believe to be the creator of this account and am attempting to verify what has happened now, but it does not look good for Gab.com, which had deleted previous critic accounts without them appearing to have infringed on its use policy.
