디스코드, 10대 위한 소셜미디어 가스(Gas) 인수

Discord, a messaging platform, announced its acquisition of Gas, a social media app that is popular among teens. Gas allows users to sign up with their school, add friends, and answer polls about their classmates with the goal of boosting users' confidence. The app was founded by Nikita Bier, who sold a similar app called tbh to Facebook in 2017. Despite its fast popularity, the app has had a rocky road, including a false sex-trafficking rumor which led to graphic death threats against the team. The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed, and Discord plans to keep Gas as a standalone app for now.
