Other options are a must. Currently big tech has ruined free speech.

It's up to us to get the word out. Maybe create content and drop links on other forums?

Free Speech was always a lie. No one really believes in it.

TPTB will want to influence what you're allowed to say. Always have. Always will.

Free speech was often used to find out who the enemy is.

they will be like "FREE SPEECH FOR A FEW YEARS" and then identify and nab everyone.

Free speech within reasonable limits is an EXPECTED RIGHT.

It's a sign that many people are disgusted with the current big tech's control and censorship. People are clamoring for a more open and free environment.

Social media app Parler is gaining traction among conservatives who are frustrated with Twitter over a number of high-profile suspensions on the platform.

Parler CEO John Matze said his platform, which surged to the 26th spot on the iOS App Store chart and No.1 in the "News" category as of Thursday, offers users the freedom to speak their minds while shielding personal data from third-party companies.

"This is a symbol that we want a Town Square for free discussion," Matze wrote on Thursday. "We the people do not want to be told what to think, we do not want to be manipulated, and we want our data to be private."

The app, which was created in 2018, drew in 500,000 new users in a few days this week, according to metrics obtained by Mediaite, bringing it to a total of 1.5 million users. Twitter has about 330 million monthly active users.

Top Republican politicians have pitched the social network throughout the week, and Sen. Ted Cruz produced a video bemoaning the power of companies such as Twitter to police speech.

"Big Tech is out of control, filled with hubris and flagrantly silencing those with whom they disagree with, from conservative media organizations to the President of the United States — and millions of Americans in between," the Texas Republican said.

Matze, who created the platform in August 2018, said he "rejects" the standards of newsroom fact-checking and censorship.

"We reject ... those who think they are the sole arbiters of truth," Matze added. "We reject their biased editorial panels, we reject their 'fact checkers,' and we reject censorship."

Trump fans are flocking to the social media app Parler — its CEO is begging liberals to join them

Parler’s user base has grown to 1.5 million from 1 million in about a week, CEO John Matze said.
Republican politicians and conservative pundits have flocked to the app, in large part to protest what they say is unfair censorship by Twitter.
“If you can say it on the street of New York, you can say it on Parler,” Matze said.

Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all have something in common, other than a strong affection towards President Trump.

The three Republican politicians joined social media app Parler this week, adding their profiles to a site that’s emerged as the new digital stomping ground for anti-Twitter conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrived earlier this month and Rep. Devin Nunes of California started in February, while Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been a member since 2018, the year the app launched.

“It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday. “What’s taking the rest of you so long?!”

To be fair, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has also been on Parler since 2018. Eric Trump, the president’s son, and his wife, Lara, joined on the same day last month. Like Twitter, the app lets users share comments, photos and news stories with their followers.

The catalyst for the latest growth surge was a story from The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, which said that the Trump administration was looking for alternatives to Facebook and Twitter over concern that more content is going to be blocked as the election campaign heats up. The Journal named Parler as a possible alternative.

Two days later, Parler was the top-ranked iPhone app in the news category, ahead of Twitter and Reddit, and 24th overall, just behind Venmo and WhatsApp, according to App Annie. User growth surged to 1.5 million from 1 million over the course of about a week, said John Matze, Parler’s 27-year-old founder and CEO.

“We’re a community town square, an open town square, with no censorship,” Matze said in an interview on Thursday, from his home in Las Vegas. “If you can say it on the street of New York, you can say it on Parler.”

Parler is playing into the hands of conservatives, who have become more vocal in their criticism of Twitter since the site started flagging Trump’s tweets for promoting violence or abusive behavior or making false claims that could confuse voters. Trump supporters have long argued that the dominant Silicon Valley platforms have been out to censor conservative voices, even as those very same people continue to post on those sites and rack up followers by the thousands.

Rep. Jordan of Ohio told his 1.4 million Twitter followers on Friday to come over to Parler, where they “don’t censor or shadow ban,” referring to the practice of banning users in a way that’s not apparent to them. By late afternoon he had about 3,100 followers on Parler.

Twitter regularly denies treating people differently based on their political views. Liz Kelley, a Twitter spokeswoman, told CNBC in a statement that, “We enforce the Twitter Rules impartially for everyone, regardless of their background or political affiliation.”

When Nunes joined in February, he told his Twitter fans, which number 1.1 million, to join him on Parler if they’re “tired of left wing censorship of big tech.” Nunes has an infamous relationship with Twitter, after attempting to sue the company for defamation and negligence and naming as defendants two anonymous parody accounts, “Devin Nunes’ Mom” and “Devin Nunes’ Cow.”
