Looks Like Tom Over At MySpace Is Going To Have Some New Neighbors….
Social media platform Parler jumped to the top downloaded app this weekend, as conservatives rally support to leave Facebook and Twitter over censorship.
“The media and the anti-Trump lunatics have awakened a sleeping giant. We gave a collective middle finger to the tech tyrants as Parler remains the NUMBER ONE most downloaded app in the world. Thank you!” conservative commentator Dan Bongino said Sunday morning.
Parler is in the top spot for most popular free apps on Apple as of Sunday morning, beating out TikTok and YouTube.
Parler was founded in 2018 and has been lauded as a platform that protects free speech.
“Parler is an unbiased social media focused on real user experiences and engagement. Our content is moderated based off the FCC and the Supreme Court of the United States which enables free expression without violence and a lack of censorship. Parler never shares your personal data,” the platform’s description reads.
Bongino announced a partnership with Parler in June, taking an ownership stake in the company.
“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,” Bongino said at the time.
Fellow conservatives, such as Mark Levin and Newt Gingrich, have called on others to give up Facebook and Twitter and move to the platform.
“Hurry and follow me at Parler. I’m trying to encourage as many of you as possible to immediately join me there as I may not stay at Facebook or Twitter if they continue censoring me. And one day, I’ll have left their platforms. Parler is a wonderful alternative and is growing, and we need you there ASAP. It believes in truly open speech. Thank you!” Levin said Sunday morning.
“As Twitter attempts to silence my views and opinions, I invite you to follow me on Parler,” Gingrich said on Thursday.
