An Alternative To Twitter   Non-Golf Folder (General)

Given the anti-Trump and anti-conservative bias of Twitter, it seemed likely that an alternative platform would come to the fore. Now, it looks like one has.

According to this report by CNBC (which can’t be happy about it), a social medium platform called Parler is suddenly making huge strides. After a Wall Street Journal story reported that Team Trump is looking for alternatives to Twitter and Facebook, and mentioned Parler as such an alternative, Parler quickly became the top-ranked iPhone app in the news category, ahead of Twitter and Reddit. The number of Parler users increased from 1 million to 1.5 million in about a week, according to Parler’s 27-year-old founder and CEO John Matze.

Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all joined during this period. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Devin Nunes were already on board. Will President Trump join them?

Just an FYI:

"I don’t participate in social media, but I know that many Power Line readers do. They might want to follow Jim Jordan’s advice: 'Join us on @parler_app. . .They don’t censor or shadow ban.' ”

According to some 'liberals' they seem so determined to entice to their site, they do censor and ban.

Can you name one who has been banned from Parler?

Personally, no.  My post was a quote from a tweet on the subject.

If this link doesn't work, just search Parler Banned on twitter

Read through the thread and saw some people who claimed they got banned, one person who was banned for posting porn, and somebody named Jack Murphy who was banned for asking about their TOS but is going to speak with their CEO about it.

Not sure I saw any evidence that someone was banned for political speech like Milo, James Woods, and Carpe Donkum (to name but a few) were on Twitter.

Obviously they didn't adhere to the Terms of Service.

Some of the banned are idiots.   Here's what one got banned for and didn't think it merited being banned.
