A new social media platform that started in 2018 is finally taking off.
This comes after Facebook and Twitter took the approach to block free speech instead of promoting it. The two social media platforms recently came under fire after the platform deleted conservative content and accounts.
Parler is a United States-based micro-blogging and social networking service launched in August 2018, regarded as an alternative to Twitter.
Many South Africans already flocked to Parler due to censorship of farm attacks on other social media platforms.
Many government officials in America already joined the platform.
I’m proud to join @parler_app — a platform gets what free speech is all about — and I’m excited to be a part of it. Let’s speak. Let’s speak freely. And let’s end the Silicon Valley censorship. Follow me there @tedcruz! pic.twitter.com/pzUFvhipBZ— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) June 25, 2020
It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app . What’s taking the rest of you so long?!— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) June 24, 2020
