I'd rank twitter at 2nd place. Maybe the chans at third. All other social media sites have pretty strict moderation.
I'd say YOUTUBE exposed a substantial number of people to alternative information on the Holocaust. Information they otherwise won't have heard, read, known about, if it wasn't for the internet having a upload site for videos. The revisionist reading site must have a limited scope, which I wouldn't underestimate, since those that are indeed reading it, are the first people one wants to reach. Videos however reach a broader mass of people and may present the arguments easier to reproduce in private debates.
What's the Logan Paul incident?

A young youtuber, who together with his brother Jake Paul and a couple of friends ran (still runs) a very popular youtube channel where they vlog themselves goofing around in different locations, even countries, have tens of millions of subscribers, many of them children, and the incident was that Logan Paul visited the Suicide forest in Japan in search for a corpse and then actually found one and filmed it (face blurred), partly trying to be serious and saying ask for help if you are suicidal, but partly sniggering in the background, all the while wearing a silly hat. That triggered a gigantic media backlash and youtube started losing major ad partners so they backpedaled and employed strict moderation which as a side effect started killing lots of revisionist channels.
