Discord has finally been made a “server” for #Gamergate.
The social media app is now the home of the #Gaters “official” Discord server, and it’s hosted on GitHub, which is an open source project for anyone to modify.
And yes, it’s also available on Apple devices.
Discord was a “secret” channel for the #gamergate movement, and the #GG community made it public for all to see last summer.
The #GamerGaters now have their own official #GamerChat, as well.
And in an announcement, Discord’s CEO, Adam Baldwin, said that the platform has “made it easier for our community to get updates and share information with each other.”
Discord has also been used by other pro-GG organizations, including the National Policy Institute.
The news comes on the heels of a number of news outlets reporting that the #GamersGate Twitter account has been shut down.
We’ve reached out to Discord and the company for comment.
The app is currently free for anyone with an account on Discord, though a $5 monthly subscription fee is required to get it.
The official Discord server can be found here.
