On October 27, 2017, the notorious Gab.ai user “Microchip” published a status stating that “Operation ‘Titty Twister’ is starting now,” and encouraged the rapid reporting and banning of progressivist and SJW Twitter users who were behind the purge of right-wing users. 

Microchip is a user that many cultural commentators are aware of, as he was heralded as the “TrumpBot” by Buzzfeed reporter Rob Bernstein. During the 2016 presidential election, Microchip had created a system where he or she could force pro-Trump hashtags to fall under the “Trending” category of Twitter. According to one anonymous alt-right proponent, tracking Microchip’s location or unmasking his or her identity is impossible

Kelly Ellis, a former Google employee who left due to claims of sexual assault, has also joined the fray, though apparently has opted to fight for Team Twitter and its defense against rightists. 

In addition to this call-to-action against leftists, Gab’s CEO and Founder Andrew Torba has stated that the decentralization of data, information, and media is an imminent force that is going to “slip away into the hands of the people. And there’s nothing you can do to stop us. Period.” 

The push by social media companies to censor right-wing content on the basis of extremism and hate speech will inevitably lead the free market to create its own outlet of social media and sustenance. Gab.ai is sustaining this synthesis, and is reacting against their liberal precedent in a mass excursion of liberal Twitter accounts. 

Two Twitter accounts, @AaronWGamer and @sxrdnx are confirmed as having been banned by Twitter since the operation, though the latter has been recently reinstated. 

The replies to Microchip’s call to arms, totaling over 500, have all been overwhelmingly supportive, providing snapshots of themselves reporting specific accounts and detailing specific posts that they had reported.

It seems that the alt-right purge commenced by Twitter has only fuelled the movement that the initiative intended to eradicate. Operating with the same tactics as biased liberal social networks, prominent Gab.ai users have begun to take a chunk out of the Twitter leftist users, obtaining revenge for their exodus from the tweeting dystopia. 

Perhaps one of the most peculiar oddities concerning this initiative is the involvement of alt-right personality Ricky Vaughn, who has tweeted out several accounts for Microchip’s followers to report. 

Operation Titty Twister has commenced. All that’s left for us viewers to do is to hang tight, and wait for the outcome to dispense.
