Parler: A New Location for Free Speech?


As always, the United States elections brought along a lot of controversies this year. Particularly the Republicans thought that they were getting censored on social media. Both Facebook and Twitter have been accused of banning certain kinds of opinions on their platforms, according to an article published in USA Today. In case you missed it, you should check out our post about the increase of negative reviews on Facebook. Users who have been frustrated with these censors appear to be switching to Parler, an app that claims to be totally unbiased.
