The Verge: Microsoft threatened to drop hosting for Gab over hate speech posts

The Verge: Microsoft threatened to drop hosting for Gab over hate speech posts. “Microsoft has threatened to cease hosting services for the alt-right social network Gab over two anti-Semitic posts, according to an email published by Gab founder Andrew Torba. The email claims the posts violate Microsoft policy and requests that Gab ‘promptly take appropriate action to resolve the complaint…within two business days’ or hosting service will be suspended. If Gab is forced off Azure, Torba says service ‘will go down for weeks/months’ as the company secures a new provider.”
