    Daily Caller ^ | 08/08/2020 | Lauryn Overhultz
    The companies that make up the world of Big Tech have some competition coming with the creation and rising popularity of new apps Parler and Triller. As the push for fairness in Big Tech continues from President Donald Trump and others, companies such as Parler and Triller are looking to topple social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and TikTok from the top. Parler was launched in 2018 as an alternative to Twitter and Facebook by University of Denver graduates John Matze and Jared Thomson. The point of the app? Free speech. "There are going to be no fact checkers,”...

    Tech censorship and leftist intolerance is the biggest threat today to America’s future.On Monday Twitter censored President Trump for posting video of Dr. Stella Immanuel discussing her success with hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus patients. Dr. Stella Immanuel said on Monday that she has personally treated over 350 patients with COVID-19 with Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Zithromax and they have all recovered. Twitter then took the video down! She’s a fearless warrior for the truth…..debunking the left wing narrative on #Hydroxychloroquine that is why they want to attack her so fiercely… keep up the good fight Dr Stella!!! https://t.co/Edx1F31Ji7— Joseph J...
  • Twitter partially suspends Donald Trump Jr. for sharing hydroxychloroquine video

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 28, 2020 | Katherine Doyle,
    Social media giant Twitter suspended the account of Donald Trump Jr. after he shared a video of doctors talking about the controversial anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine. A message from the company said that some features of Trump Jr.'s account were "temporarily limited" after he violated the company's rules — specifically, a policy on "spreading misleading and potentially harmful misinformation" related to the coronavirus. The drug became a flashpoint in the administration's coronavirus response after President Trump began touting it as a possible cure. Trump said he took the drug after his personal valet caught the virus. White House trade and manufacturing...

    Vice/Motherboard ^ | 7-15-2020 | Joseph Cox
    A Twitter insider was responsible for a wave of high profile account takeovers on Wednesday, according to leaked screenshots obtained by Motherboard and two sources who took over accounts. On Wednesday, a spike of high profile accounts including those of Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Uber, and Apple tweeted cryptocurrency scams in an apparent hack. "We used a rep that literally done all the work for us," one of the sources told Motherboard. The second source added they paid the Twitter insider. Motherboard granted the sources anonymity to speak candidly about a security incident. A Twitter spokesperson...
  • Twitter alternative Parler soars as conservatives flock to new social network; Surpasses both Twitter and Reddit to become the top-rated news-related iPhone app

    Life Site News ^ | 07/10/2020 | Calvin Freiburger
    As relations between Twitter and its conservative users continue to deteriorate, a new conservative-friendly alternative is gaining steam with its stated devotion to true freedom of speech. Founded by John Matze and Jared Thomson, Parler bills itself as a “non-biased free speech driven entity that “accepts your right to express your thoughts, opinions and ideals online.” Whereas Twitter and Facebook have steadily adopted and expanded roles as adjudicators of “productive” versus “hateful” or “misleading” speech, Parler says it “aims to empower users to control their social experience. Users can be responsible to engage content as they see fit.” The platform...

    Over the last few weeks Parler has become the talk of Trumpist land, with promises of a social media site that "supports free speech." The front page of the site insists that its content moderation is based on the standards of the FCC and the Supreme Court of the United States:...Besides, as we pointed out, Parler's terms of service allow them to ban users or content for any reason whatsoever -- suggesting they didn't have much conviction behind their "we only moderate based on the FCC and the Supreme Court."...So, anyway, on Monday, we noted that Parler was actually banning...

    Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos, has temporarily banned President Trump’s account for “hateful conduct” stemming from footage of the president’s speeches. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson told Fox News. A rebroadcast of Trump’s 2015 campaign launch -- when he famously criticized people crossing the Mexican border to illegally enter the United States -- and comments Trump made at his recent Tulsa rally...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Reddit, one of the largest social networking and message board websites, on Monday banned its biggest community devoted to President Trump as part of an overhaul of its hate speech policies. The community or “subreddit,” called “The_Donald,” is home to more than 790,000 users who post memes, viral videos and supportive messages about Mr. Trump. Reddit executives said the group, which has been highly influential in cultivating and stoking Mr. Trump’s online base, had consistently broken its rules by allowing people to target and harass others with hate speech. “Reddit is a place for community and belonging,...

    CNBC ^ | June 29th | RandFan
    I was thinking about what @john the owner of Parler said about investment... He does not believe he can get investment from Silicon Valley because he is in direct competition with them. Apparently Dan Bongino has invested but that got me thinking... Why doesn't he crowd fund the investment? Would you kick in for a piece of the pie? Crowd funding is nothing new. There are many companies/websites where you can setup projects to appeal for capital from smaller investors (like ourselves). Do you think this would be a good idea? Anyone familiar with crowd funding and think it can...

    Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all have something in common, other than a strong affection towards President Trump. The three Republican politicians joined social media app Parler this week, adding their profiles to a site that’s emerged as the new digital stomping ground for anti-Twitter conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrived earlier this month and Rep. Devin Nunes of California started in February, while Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been a member since 2018, the year the app launched. “It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday. “What’s taking the rest of...

    American Thinker ^ | 27 Jun, 2020 | J.B. Shurk
    I have a question. What use is a federal government that refuses to protect our basic constitutional rights? Twitter and Google and Facebook are censoring and demonizing conservative political speech, and nobody does a thing. Democrat mayors and governors are bankrupting American citizens by preventing them from engaging in simple commerce, and they're getting away with it. Street mobs across America are causing millions of dollars in property damage, destroying priceless historical monuments; killing police officers; and targeting random, unlucky citizens based on the color of their skin, and the press cheerlead the madness and defend the murderers and arsonists...

    A prominent pseudonymous blogger has shut down his site after a New York Times reporter refused to conceal his identity in a forthcoming piece, putting his livelihood and life in danger. Psychiatrist Scott Alexander (his first and middle, but not last, name) has worked for years to cultivate a small but thriving intellectual community through his blog Slate Star Codex. That came to a halt Monday evening, however, when Alexander deleted the blog, replacing it with a post entitled "NYT Is Threatening My Safety By Revealing My Real Name, So I Am Deleting The Blog." The deletion was the culmination...
