4chan, College, and Crime: @JaredTSwift said. "Now, we've pushed the Overton window," referring to the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse. Twitter is the key platform for shaping that discourse. "People have adopted our rhetoric, sometimes without even realizing it. We're setting up for a massive cultural shift," @JaredTSwift said. The thinking goes among white supremacists, if today we can get "normies" talking about Pepe the Frog, then tomorrow we can get them to ask the other questions on our agenda: "Are Jews people?" or "What about black on white crime?" "You can't understate 4chan's role," says Keegan Hankes, a research analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center's2 Intelligence Project. Hankes sees the more tech-savvy guys in the white nationalist movement "getting their content from 4chan."

The typical user at Reddit, like at 4chan, is young, white, and male. Twitter users, on the other hand, are more likely to be black or Latinx. For white supremacists that want to make sport out of harassing people of color, Twitter is a "target rich" environment. These platforms are driven by different economic imperatives. While 4chan is a low- budget, sole proprietor operation with no paid employees, Reddit and Twitter are both companies with an interest in turning a profit. And both face similar dilemmas. Twitter is valued at $13 billion and Reddit at $500 million, but both struggle to attract buyers and advertisers because of their toxic, racist, sexist content. For Twitter, the decision to allow white supremacists a place on their platform is one that seems to be good for their bottom line, at least in the short term. And for white supremacists, there are two things Twitter offers that 4chan and Reddit do not: an outsize influence on the news cycle and lots of people of In my college textbook
