He tells how you need to give them a selfie and a drivers license scan in order to direct message.
They can delete anything anytime they want even without reason.
Account deletion by email only. And forced arbitration
Terms of service can be changed any time without notification to users.
If one of your posts leads to legal action against them then you agree to pay all legal fees.
They may have the right to use the information in the contact lists of your devices.
Then we have the obvious:
"Are millions of Conservatives being led into a new Conservative ghetto from which they will become completely invisible to the outside world?"
"It's brilliant if this was an actual strategy. Get the Conservatives to SILENCE themselves outside a bubble to promote 'free speech'."
"We retreat in the culture war into a silo where we all talk to people who already agree with us."
"Any Conservatives who retreated behind the Parler login wall and abandoned their accounts on this platform is now invisible for the upcoming election."
I signed up without having to scan anything. It’s nonsense.
Did you check their driver's licenses, verifying the author?
I've had an account on Parler for a year now but hardly go there. I just wanted to stake a spot there. Twitter is where I spent much of my time (when I'm not here). I've managed to collect 2,000 followers on Twitter without even working at it. If I did work at it, I have no doubt I could get up to 100K within about a year.
That is where the audience is. Trump has 82,000,000 followers there! Why would conservatives want to throw up a white flag and surrender such a massive media platform to the Left?
Makes no sense to me.
The article makes no such claim that you need to scan your license to sign up. The claim is that you need to do that in order to DM. See my next comment.
Actually that just sounds like it might be a prudent precaution. Just because it is conservative and given the reality with the fascist left out side needs to be more careful. Remember, we think people should show ID to vote to keep the left from cheating. So this does not hit me as being unfounded in itself. I will wait a little longer and hop[e that it goes well. An above poster said Dan B. was involved in this so that raises my trust level.
Just remember, anything that isn’t explicitly Right-Wing (as FR is), becomes Left-Wing over time.
Because twitter are banning accounts with millions of followers so they’re setting up camp on Parler...
They will spread the word which is why its growing so fast. It’s probably the hottest internet property around at the moment.
I already knew that they did drivers license scans for something. Do you know how? Because several days ago I went and read their FAQ. And they were answering questions about scanning drivers licenses. So there it was in there own documentation. Do you think they were just kidding?
Is this guy a paid, leftist tool?
They want ID for verified accounts i.e the gold P which appears on them i.e search Rand Paul and you’ll see it like twitters blue tick.
Drudge sold out for the right amount of silver.
So we should just allow ourselves to be run off the Twitter platform and made to setup camp in a backwater echo chamber that nobody ever visits?
search Rand Paul and youll see it like twitters blue tick.

You can’t search....on Parler....unless you have signed up/registered.
They want a phone #, and you can’t do a public search (like, for newsworthy people/issues), so, so far, I’ve not signed up.
backwater echo chamber
I think they happen to call posts/replies to posts ‘echoes’.
Not sure, since I’m not on Parler, at this time.
I totally understand. I’m just saying for people who are signed up they can get their accounts verified with ID and it shows a gold P in your profile so people know its them and not some leftist impostor!
so now you resort to insults when you can’t dispute the information. You all run into the fire. Its your life. But one thing is for sure. If you do burn then no one in the outside world will see it happen. 99% will never see anything you or anyone else posts there. Because it was designed that way. If that does not worry you then nothing will.
Maybe after his re-election is behind him, he'll do something like that. That would be fun to watch, actually.
