Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms.
“600,000 new Gabbers today,” said Torba.
Torba previously revealed that Gab’s traffic exploded as high as 753 percent after Trump and many other conservatives have been purged from Twitter, Facebook, and other big tech platforms.
“Our traffic is up 753% in the past 24 hours. Tens of millions of visits,” Gab said in response to slow loading speeds on the platform.
To meet the rising demand, Gab said it would add ten new servers to its platform to alleviate congestion.
Gab started as the first free speech alternative to Twitter. Gab allows all legal speech except for pornography. Users can curate their own experience on Gab by creating custom filters. Gab also takes a hard stance against illegal content
