Mastodon was launched as a decentralized, social justice friendly Twitter alternative that was free of Nazis and harassment.
Its biggest instance is now Gab, a far-right social media network known widely as a gathering space for white supremacists.
THREAD (1/7) Although we were asked by @BMakuch to make a statement for his recent piece in @Motherboard we are appalled at the way in which Ben has taken up, uncritically, the claims of the far right social network and that the piece is in essence an advertisement for Gab. https://twitter.com/MastodonProject/status/1149434185720799232?s=17
@blank71 I used google translate for this so please tell me this isnt what it said:
“Includes founder and conspiracy perpetrator Alex Jones of the neo-Nazi site ‘Daily Stormer’“
I don't know about Gab who made it or who is operating it. And I can't understand what you want to say. (please introduce more easily...😭)
I'm Japanese and Gab doesn't known well in Japan. So I searched about it.
Japanese know why Gab started to use mastodon's code.
Many Japanese don't know and would not care about who is him, I think. Most of us only remember that Gab caused accidents.
well, Japanese know some user who was in Gab caused it.
I'm agree that Twitter or another SNS have some dangerous people too.
