I am a strong believer in free speech. Which is why I think @getongab is a great option to have. What I find funny is people pretending #gab now is in any way different to how Twitter was previous to 2014. It is not. Twitter just turned its back on free speech. That was it. 1/5
Now, #Gab new app and service called #dissenter is consistent with this idea of free speech first. And I like it as it is truly cross-platform and open source as it should be given what it tries to do. It is also not that different than what disqus does. 2/5
I remember covering disqus rise as the top 3rd party comment system for the internet. As they battled intense debate, js-kit and others. Back then it was about easy integration via it being just an embeddable. It then grew to a discussion portal. #dissenter is the same. 3/5
Difference is that #dissenter goes beyond the publisher having to integrate it first. Putting the power back to the reader. Specially important now that some news sites and blog have turned their back on the defining feature of having reader engagement and criticism. 4/5
Making it possible for a dual approach. As site admins will be able to integrate it or leave it to users to do so for them without it having to touch their sites. And that is a good thing. But #dissenter is not the only new comment system in town. More are about to come. 5/5
