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.

“Trump is going to get his fat ass kicked”.
And then there’s the litigious Nunes and his cow, both of whom are now on Parler.

For my American followers, it means there’s no §230 CDA equivalent in aus law. /3
1. Remove the defamatory post; or
2. Be named as a defendant.
In the first, there goes no-moderation. /4
Well, this gem is tucked away in the Terms and Conditions:
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
