Here we go again. Has Big Tech taken down another conservative social media source?

Social media has been hit with another take-down, and it is another conservative favorite. Parler is still trying to get back to normal after they were recently taken down.

Gab, a ‘Free Speech Social Network’ favored by conservatives, went offline Friday night, and its Twitter account also went down (screenshots below).

“What’s going on???”

The buzz began when tweets about Gab’s website and its associated social media account went down at about 6:30 p.m. Eastern time.

One Twitter user claimed to be on Gab just before it went down and speculated that the site was hacked as a part of a cryptocurrency scam:

The website’s founder, Andrew Torba, has not commented on the issue. Is this another Big Tech takedown or just a maintenance issue?
