Just thought those who are right of Stalin on these boards might check this out if they haven't yet...

Parler may just become Twitter for normal people.

Forbes Article


In the midst of its effort to drive censorship concerned users away from Twitter, the social media app Parler released its own “Declaration of Internet Independence.” While it reads like a bit of a gimmick at times, Parler calls it a “plan to return to the original vision of the internet.”

In late May, Parler kicked off its #Twexit campaign following a heated online conflict between Twitter and President Donald Trump. Twitter flagged and fact-checked Trump’s comments on the George Floyd civil rights protests in Minnesota – leading to Trump calling for the revoking of Section 230 for the social media platform. That revocation would mean Twitter loses its immunity from lawsuits if controversial material gets tweeted.


My wife signed up on it last night and the users so far seem pretty friendly.

I'm still deciding whether After ATS I'm just going feral or try someplace else online.

Other news on it...

Seems Dan Bongino just bought an ownership stake into Parler...


I’ve decided it’s time to fight back against the Tech Tyrants. I’m beyond fed up with the censorship and bias of Twitter and Facebook and I’m not going to stand back and watch as they target us. As a result, I’ve taken an ownership stake in Parler, the hottest social media alternative in the market right now.

Parler and I share common values. We are resolutely committed to free speech, and the marketplace of ideas.

And you have a PM.

Just to Echo DB, people fighting back against censorship in a capitalistic way... GREAT.

long over due, hope they hold on to the even handed thinking cause once folks get happy the trolls will come running.

I signed up to Parler after LSU 2018 suggested it. It's not bad, limited viewpoints and mostly conservative needs more participants. But we shall see. Also revisited old sites I joined in the Fringe and the Straight Dope, gonna take some getting used too, none are as comprehensive as ATS.

Do let people know where you end up always enjoy your viewpoints

I did too, and every site starts out small. I hope it gives Tw@#$% serious competition.

This is great -

Twitter is just full of idiocy!

Oh, and did I mention shills?

Parler and Gab seem to be growing, slowly but surely at the moment.

After ATS I'm cutting the cord from social media.

Both Parler & Gab seem a little 'dorky' compared to twitter but they haven't had a decade doing business with bazillions of online users either.
All new platforms require diligent usage to become proficient. A comparative youtube vid would be great.
I never facebooked because of the infuriating timeline sequencing crapola.
Good Luck hope to see ya'll there.

I read their TOS and it sounded like the typical TOS to me..."We reserve the right to ban users without warning or explanation" kind of thing (I'm paraphrasing).

So I thought I might hold back and see how it goes over there before making an account.

Do you have to give a phone number to join? I don't like that and probably won't join if they require one.

I gave my standard phone number to online prying eyes...1 (513) 555-1212.

Not my fault that 99% of online info scrapers don't know the number for information...
