The Christian Post reports:
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 QAnon accounts would be affected.
Parler, which has 2.7 million users, says it doesn’t “censor content based on politics or ideology,” or “mine or sell user data.” And it will “continues to stand with the people and against technocronyism.”
I’m proud to join @parler_app — a platform gets what free speech is all about — and I’m excited to be a part of it. Let’s speak. Let’s speak freely. And let’s end the Silicon Valley censorship. Follow me there @tedcruz! pic.twitter.com/pzUFvhipBZ

I was just recruited by a Qanon on Parler. It was only a matter of time. I don’t know how long I have before the black helicopters show up. If you don’t hear back from in twelve hours, tell Betty White that I love her.
