8chan owner has been summoned to testify before the House

The owner of 8chan, the online message board that has been repeatedly linked to mass shootings, has been summoned to appear before the House Committee on Homeland Security..

…Little is known about Jim Watkins, 8chan’s owner, including — it appears — his physical mailing address.

…Watkins, a US Army veteran, is said to have relocated his family in 2004 to the Philippines, where he reportedly lives today.

…In its tweet announcing the letter, the House Committee included 8chan’s Twitter handle in an apparent attempt to make contact with the company. Given that 8chan then retweeted the letter, it appears the company is aware its owner had been summoned.

…8chan’s message board remained offline at the time of this article’s publication.
