Topic[edit]

Founder of PewTube here, thanks for the fair write-up guys and I agree the site is too heavily tilted towards alt-right material atm, please take that as an opportunity to host material that represents a broader cross-section of the internet and I would be very thankful of that, cheers!

Is the leftist censorship drama a red herring?[edit]

Recently, PewTube showed its support for the channel Boston Antifa. To my understanding, PewTube found a group of people — who happened to be extreme leftists — problematic because they abused security holes. That's why the user got banned and got their videos removed. Now that being said, PewTube admits that a Hitler speech was being viewbotted, but it didn't do anything about it.—(((CheeseburgerFace))) Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 02:57, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

I'm unsure about the leftist censorship. It is, however, clear that the author hails from the right & expresses that view on the platform and on Twitter. Regardless, the site only has 0.5million total views anyway -- might not be covering in detail yet. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 07:54, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

End of operations[edit]

It's dead. Somebody update the article — Unsigned, by: 80.187.102.136 / talk / contribs

Footnote change[edit]

I've changed the footnote link regarding PewTube's death to Isitdown information versus the previous which was some alt-shite Wordpress blog. If anyone can find information from some source that's better than either then by all means replace what I've put in. Towards-the Unknown (talk) 21:16, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
