Twitter Users Joining Parler as Alternative Social Media as Big Tech Continues Censorship

Parler, the social media app that’s billed as a platform for free and open dialogue, said it would continue to counter “technocronyism” following Twitter’s announcement that it would be cracking down on accounts and censoring content it deems as harmful.

After Twitter released a statement Tuesday saying it would be permanently banning accounts, a spokesperson for the social media giant told NBC News that some 150,000 accounts would be affected.
