Twexit — Twitter vs Parler

#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.

Parler – New Alternative To Twitter

The new social platform wants to be heaven for free speech.

Parler is a young social platform similar to Twitter but intended as bios free, an apolitical stage for everyone to use without fear of being kicked out. The network is quickly becoming a home for those banned on Twitter and Facebook.

Company CEO John Matze told Politico.

We’re pretty much bipartisan from our standpoint. I really don’t want to take a stance at all on the political side of things. However it seems extremely relevant right now for conservatives at least to build a platform where they can build trust. They feel extremely abused by social media.

As for information found on their website, Parler allows digital publishers, influencers, writers, politicians and citizens to engage in conversations and content in real time. The goal is to empower users to control their social experience and build trust within the online community. Their goal is to supply the infrastructure for the next generation of social media where content creators are supported for participating.

  • Parler aims to empower users to control their social experience. Users can be responsible to engage content as they see fit.
  • They are not regulators or governors. Perler is a community.
  • The platform accepts your right to express your thoughts, opinions and ideals online.
  • Just like in society, Parler interactions are subject to guidelines; and when you respect them, you are free to participate wholly.

Parler CEO John Matze on Ingraham Angle.

How it started.

After being exhausted with a lack of transparency in big tech, ideological censorship, and privacy abuse, John Matze and Jared Thomson decided to create an alternative solution and in 2018 Parler was born.

What is it.

Parler is a tool where everyone can be their media outlet, filter their content, and the established influencers and digital publishers can use the platform to enhance their brands and communities. Additionally, provided enterprise tools can be used to enhance online blogs, media, and websites with direct social integrations and monetization capabilities.

Who is it for.

Parler provides a Commenting and Social News platform for digital publishers, influencers, bloggers, writers, politicians, and social users to share news, opinions, and content in real time.

The future is bright.

As I’ve mentioned, Parler is a new company, and their service just started to gain popularity due to recent actions taken by established social media platform providers against, mainly, conservative users. Many of those, some very prominent, who ware suspended, demonetized or banned by the likes of Facebook and Twitter has moved to Parler bringing a big chunk of their followers with them.

Of course Parler, even with a recent surge in signups, is no match for the guys at the top, but… if the rumors are real, and Trump 2020 campaign is looking at Parler as a potential alternative to Twitter, that would be a game changer. Even if only a fraction of President’s 60 million followers will move to Parler, that little platform will be on its way to become a serious threat to the social media establishment.
