For those who know about the social-media site Parler, any thoughts regarding it? Anyone here have an account?

I created an account just to see what it was all about. It seems like it's basically just a pro free speech version of Twitter without character limits. It wasn't really something that interested me but if you like Twitter's format then you will like that.

Old = wise. At least that's what I keep telling myself. Anyhow, Twitter is such a cesspool so I'll check it out.

I signed up just to see it and the Interface is awful. I am sure it'll be a cess pool just like twitter in no time because people are the worst.

It would be nice if it gains traction as an alternative to Twitter. MySpace was the first "Facebook" So first to market does not always make one the ultimate winner.

Parler actually seems to be gaining quite a bit of traction, with some big name accounts on there, in addition to quite a few news orgs. Worth keeping on my phone and looking at from time to time. It seems like conservatives have no choice but to make a mass switch to a platform like that which actually respects them.

Only thing any of them are good for is, passing on scores of ball games.

And there is quite a few forms of speech that are prohibited so it’s not really the true free speech bastion everyone was hailing it to be. Already seen reports from people complaining about how they can’t just say any dumb crap they feel like saying. In some ways it even cracks down on speech more than Twitter does.
