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.
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.

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
