So, Gab did it. They launched on the fediverse based on Mastodon and since they brought in 1M users. Gab is actually now the biggest Mastodon node by far. Another thing is that I calculate there are now at least 25 apps across Windows10, Windows App store, iOS, OSX, Android and Linux that can connect to Gab. So, there is that. What is also interesting is that over time Gab will be the most featured Mastodon Node Site. Given they are also porting in all the features gab had and adding new ones.
