Apparently there’s RWNj demand for something that’s like Twitter but monetizes subscription scams and harvests influence among like-minded crazies.
Parler is the RWNJ refuge from Twitter, like it makes much of a difference considering Twitter still allows Trump to tweet. So much work just so you can show reactionary “tongue-in-cheek” pictures of your guns and swear at “liberals”.
Parler just isn’t growing fast enough despite the Trump base, so this kind of disinformation can only thrive in Twitter. Trump tried to amplify it only to slide back to “lobster” marketing. Then there’s all those Saudis who got thrown off Twitter, and who are now on Parler. Trump however does get his paranoid stupidity from folks somewhere over there and those who remain in Twitter. There’s just no time left before the election for it to do anything for the Trump election campaign.
So THIS is the basis for Trump world's insane accusations of treason against Obama & Biden? A note from Strzok saying Obama instructed Flynn be investigated “by the right people” and Biden mentioning the Logan Act. Sheesh. This is going to be a painful 4 months until November. https://t.co/fIjhinkIAP
HeÃ¢ÂÂll get serious in his third term 2025 to 2029 and will complete it in 2046 for his 100th Birthday. Remember, Ann, it is all being paid for by Mexico, plus what he can steal from the DOD budgets. He is a long term thinker, and it takes awhile to get used to being a dictator! https://t.co/6vW142yKQ3
Carville: I think thereÃ¢ÂÂs a better chance that Trump does not run for re-election than he is re-elected… SomebodyÃ¢ÂÂs going to have to go tell this guy look you just canÃ¢ÂÂt risk the humiliating defeat thatÃ¢ÂÂs coming your way and Jared.. is going to have to sit down have a real talk pic.twitter.com/veAXvdDU0h— Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) June 26, 2020
And then there’s the litigious Nunes and his cow, both of whom are now on Parler.

First note that Australian defamation law is much more plaintiff-friendly than US defamation law. A side effect of that pesky first amendment. And you can’t sidestep it with some libel tourism because Aussie defamation judgments can’t be enforced in the US. /2
But, the NSWCA just upheld the trial decision in Voller  NSWCA 102. The effect of that judgment is that the owners of websites can be liable for defamation for the content users post on them.
For my American followers, it means there’s no §230 CDA equivalent in aus law./3
So if a user defames someone on Parler and Parler is on notice of it (rest assured someone who is defamed will give notice to Parler) then Parler has two options:
1.Remove the defamatory post; or 2.Be named as a defendant.
In the first, there goes no-moderation./4
And so let’s assume Parler sticks to its principles and stands its ground. What does that mean for the author of the defamatory comment?
Well, this gem is tucked away in the Terms and Conditions:
An Aus defamation judgment might not be enforceable in the USA but a contractual indemnity against one probably is. And so, circutiously, Parler users are exposed to SLAPP suits in the defamation capital of the world in a way that twitter users are not./6
This explains why Devin Nunes loves it so much.
Some will say “but Parler is American, you can’t enforce a defamation judgment against them any more than an individual user”.
And sure, that’s true. Provided they never want to sell an ad or generate a single $ of profit here./7
Nobody should read this as me advocating a new form of defamation tourism. But, absolute free speech on a commercial platform is demonstrably harder than people think. Parler shows one way to plug the leak is with your users’ money. Twitter so far hasn’t gone that route. /end
