#Twexit — Twitter vs Parler

We’ve placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behavior…,

More and more (mostly conservative) accounts on Twitter get these notices, and more and more get thrown out of the platform every day. Most of the instances of “unlucky” Twitter users being dealt with by Twitter Thought Police go unnoticed. Still, when high profile conservative gets lectured — like POTUS — or kicked out — like Katie Hopkins or Carpe Donktum — everyone talks about it and things start to happen.

500,000 Social Media Users Moved To PARLER!

The first time I’ve written about Parler was a little over a year ago after company’s CEO John Matze’s appearance on Ingraham Angle. At that time, Parler had a little over 100,000 users, today it has over 1.5 million.

Of course, 1.5 million looks laughable compared to over 330 million active users on the Twitter platform. Still, Parley’s numbers are growing fast, and these are mostly high-quality users, meaning — people with disposable income.

Efforts on the part of Twitter to ban, suspend, and censor prominent conservative voices from its platform forced them and their followers to look for other options. Parler — a social media platform with functionally similar to Twitter, but without the censorship — seems like a perfect replacement.

The big names that have set up Parler accounts recently include:

Many of these personalities continue to use Twitter but promote Parler to their followers. Some also re-post their Parler content on their Twitter accounts.

Katie Hopkins and Carpe Donktum recently joined the platform after being removed from Twitter. Katie isn’t the only high profile Brit who joined Parler. Some Conservative Members of Parlament have joined the platform. These include the MP for Mansfield Ben Bradley, MP for Guildford Angela Richardson, and MP for Wycombe Steve Baker.

Is Jack Dorsey destroying Twitter?

It appears that Jack Dorsey wants to purge his platform off all conservatives. Still, in reality, his actions force any user, not just conservative, with even traces of common sense, to re-evaluate Twitter as a social media platform. People, in general, don’t like to be patronized by some condescending “superior intellect.”

If Jack does not change his attitude towards independent thinkers, Twitter will be over-run by supporters of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Barack Obama. It means that only children, teenagers, college students, and adults who believe that everything they need should be provided free of charge, will use Twitter.

People who have jobs, run small businesses, receive good pensions, and are willing to spend their hard-earned money — the kind of people that corporations want to advertise their products to, will move somewhere else.

Because no business will pay to advertise its product or service to people who are not interested in paying for it, Twitter will become a platform filled with hundreds of millions of users with zero commercial value to advertisers.

On the other hand, Parler will have a much leaner user base but with much more to offer for those ready to pay for access to those users.
Quality over quantity. Always.
