Citing hate speech, Google suspends social media site favored by alt-right from app store

Gab made the announcement in a tweet on Thursday night.

Gab was founded as an alternative to Twitter for those who "believe in free speech, individual liberty, and the free flow of information online."

The site has attracted right-wing internet celebrities who have been banned by Twitter, like former Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos, and those who believe mainstream social media sites are suppressing conservative viewpoints.

"In order to be on the Play Store, social networking apps need to demonstrate a sufficient level of moderation, including for content that encourages violence and advocates hate against groups of people," a Google spokesperson said in a statement.
