According to a report by BREAKER Magazine, Cash App, a payment platform owned by U.S. based firm Square, has held up its decision to block the corporate account of Gab, a controversial social media site. The confirmation comes in the wake of a Twitter post by Gab, where it implied that the payment app had reinstated the company’s account.
Gab has always prided itself as a safe place for people to express themselves. Since its launch in 2016, it has gained worldwide notoriety, seen by many as being an incubator for white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other extremists. Many people with these views have found a haven in Gab, after being banned from more popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter for violating the platforms’ rules regarding hate speech.
