The personal account of Andrew Torba, a founder of a social media platform Gab, has been blocked. The news was tweeted on the 4th of January.
The business account of the social media platform was closed in December previous year. The main reason for its getting a payment processor was that the platform is known for accepting users who were banned from other social media because of their hate speeches.
The New York Times mentioned the platform as a social network that was used by the shooter in Pittsburg. There, he had posted a final message before the synagogue was attacked. Now, the business account of the platform is closed, like another account merchandise shop that was used for anonymous non-profit WikiLeads, due to the violation of the terms of service.
There were some more cases when the platform was used for calling to and organizing illegal actions.
