4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump
Dale Beran

So weird to see how this movement has evolved since I left.

Think the last I was an active member (just a lurker) was when the “pool’s closed” thing was going on. So strange to see that random collective of /b/tards become a political engine. Thank you for this article by the way, I’m writing an essay on the same topic and I plan to cite this heavily, as it provides the best summary of 4chan, its history, and its relationship to modern political movements.
