Are the other alternatives to twitter/facebook holding up to the new traffic?

Makes sense.
I spent a hr last night trying to follow you, ATI, and Chew.
Neither would ever work.
Kept looping me back to the previous page.

Doesn't appear to be. Most flocked to Parler which is gone, and Gab which had a huge influx and can't handle it and/or may be targeted for ddos. Have heard about Clouthub and also MeWe but haven't joined either yet.

MeWe is the only thing that's still up for me. Gab and Parler are down. I never heard of Clouthub before. Maybe they're up, if anyone is on that one?

What kind of platform is MeWe? Like Twitter or Parler?

seems like it is halfway between Twitter and Facebook.

Side note - I love the fact that Twitter was down 12%, $5B in market cap today. May not last, but the message is clear.

i saw a couple days ago that they've had a 750% increase in signups, and it's probably gone way up since then. They own their own servers so they're having to add them and people are filling them up as fast as they get them up and running. they should have it running smoothly again soon.

I'm just hear for the man-crushing.

And to say I've been on Gab pretty hot and heavy lately and haven't seen anything racist, anti-semitic, white supremacist, etc. Just anti SOCIALISM and anti COMMUNISM.










And anti-beans in chili.

Edit: That's weird. The link doesn't work properly once copied and pasted. Just search Gab Social Media on Wikipedia.

Gab is an American alt-tech social networking service known for its far-right and extremist userbase.[3][4][5][6] Widely described as a haven for extremists including neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the alt-right, it has attracted users and groups who have been banned from other social networks.[7][8][18] Gab claims to promote free speech and individual liberty, though these statements have been criticized as being a shield for its alt-right and extremist ecosystem.[16][19][20] Antisemitism is prominent among the site's content, and the company itself has engaged in antisemitic commentary on Twitter.[22][23][24] Researchers have written that Gab has been "repeatedly linked to radicalization leading to real-world violent events".[25]

Gab launched publicly in May 2017.[26] A microblogging platform, Gab has been described as similar to Twitter.[6][27] The site experienced extensive public scrutiny following the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in October 2018, after it was found that the sole suspect of the attack, Robert Gregory Bowers, had posted a message on Gab indicating an immediate intent to cause harm before the shooting.[28] Bowers had a history of making extreme, antisemitic postings on the site.[8][24] After the shooting, Gab briefly went offline when it was dropped by its hosting provider and denied service by several payment processors.[29][30][31]

In February 2019, Gab launched Dissenter, a browser extension and website that allows Gab users to make comments on content hosted on any website via an overlay visible only to those logged into Dissenter or using the extension. This allows commentary that bypasses individual site moderation practices.[32][33] In April 2019, Dissenter was removed from the Firefox Add-ons website and the Chrome Web Store for violation of their policies.[34] In July 2019, Gab switched its software infrastructure to a fork of Mastodon, a free and open-source social network platform. Mastodon released a statement in protest, denouncing Gab as trying to "monetize and platform racist content while hiding behind the banner of free speech."[35]

yeah wikipedia has been going pretty hard and heavy on the left wing narrative kool-aid. they are constantly getting caught retroactively changing long standing things to fit the modern narrative. back when the covid ridiculousness started they changed their spanish flu page to make the death rate more closely match what was being said about covid at the time.

for me, i treat wikipedia as one step away from the lamestream media, which has been in nonstop lying mode since Trump won the primary in 2016. if the lamestream media says something even remotely political i assume it's false unless otherwise proven right, and similarly for wikipedia, i assume it's probably false but could be true in certain contexts. in this case they're just recycling the standard "i'll call anyone racist that doesn't jump on my bandwagon and call it a day" story. i just did a few random spot checks on their citations and they're seem heavy on accusations, light on proof.

Call me nuts, but do y'all see the trend? They're shutting off communication....

I'd find an online place and a non-internet required device to keep in touch with others and send communication to people if you need to.
You never know, this place may be shut down without any warning, your Facebook, Cell connection, Text Messaging, etc... may be shut down for whatever reason, find a way to send messages without the need of internet if you need to inform people of something or ask for help.

better safe than sorry. hopefully the folks at Gab can accommodate for the higher than expected traffic, but even Gab is no good with no internet.

either I'm doing something wrong or Gab has changed some settings, but I can't see any of the contents of the Texas Hunting group unless I go to "Recent Activity" and even then, none of my duck hunting pictures are there anymore!

Figured it out. Select the drop down list where you see "Top Posts" and select "Recent." That made everything show up for me.
