Join Parler.com

As long-suffering readers of this inconsequential blog know, I got booted from Twitter for questioning the veracity of a tweet by Mark Ruffalo. Fine. Twitter is a fascist dumpster fire. In the last few days I have joined Parler.com which is a breath of fresh air. Freedom! I want free!

Sure it has some technical glitches, but those seem to be getting fewer and fewer. A surprising number of conservatives in the US and the UK have joined.

Give it a try.

  1. Can't, they only confirm membership by mobile, and I don't use a smart phone, nor do I text. And since that is part of their FAQ, it is obvious they aren't interested in changing that.

    1. I'm on Gab as well and find that it's a great place to communicate with other reasonable conservative and libertarian folks. All free speech, all the time. There are some out-and-out fascists and other Jew-haters there, but they can be muted if you're tired of their BS.

  4. Found it fine. They aren't--so far--censoring conservatives. I have a Gab account, too.

  6. This the kind of glitch that still plagues Parler. I searched for Amselem@theDiplomad and no name found. Searching for diplomad found you. I look forward to seeing you there too.

  8. Parler is good andband I have anyan account there but I also have accounts on Gab, MeWe, Sharfly and Xephula. I expect the alternate social media sites to do well as the YouTwitFace universe deconstructs.

  9. Yea, I lost my Twitter account for suggesting to my Fed Rep that section 230 of the communications act needed a revision to address the social media platforms acting as publishers and censoring comments.
