San Francisco Aug 10 (IANS) Gab a US-based social network of choice for the far right is facing suspension of hosting services from Microsoft over two anti-Semitic posts the media reported.
"Gab s hosting provider Microsoft Azure has given us 48 hours to take action on two posts or they will pull our service and Gab will go down for weeks/months " Gab Founder Andrew Torba said in a post on Thursday.
According to an email attached by Torba the posts violate Microsoft policy.
The named posts were written by Patrick Little a Senate candidate who was ejected from a GOP convention in May for anti-Semitic views The Verge reported.
While pledging to remove the posts Little described the complaint as "a violation of our rights as Americans."
