One of the best alternatives to Twitter is without a doubt the Gab social network. An application that has been involved in great controversy, since the protesters who stormed the United States Capitol used this service together with Parler, to communicate with each other.
The truth is Gab is committed to freedom of expressionbut this has caused a legion of radicals to end up in this social network that is increasingly linked to the extreme right.
Yes, you can download Gab, but not from Google Play or the App Store
Until very recently this alternative to Twitter was available in the corresponding Google and Apple app stores. The problem is that, due to the constant hate speech by some of the users, added to the fact that Gap has been used to organize the assault on the Capitol, they have caused Apple and Google to decide to remove this app from the Play Store and App Store.
A very unfortunate decision, as regardless of whether Gab joins the extreme right, it is not fair that the app is removed from the app stores. And less with the excuse that “they do not comply with the conditions of use”, making clear the excess power of the technological giants. Fortunately, the solution to this veto is very simple.
