Tech giants effectively disenfranchising more than 72 million conservatives.
Parler, the alternative social media platform favored by conservatives, now finds its internet access shut down as Twitter, Amazon, Apple and Google have all booted it from their platforms in a span of a little more than 24 hours.
The decision will shut down Parler’s website and app until it can find a new hosting provider.
“Yeah, we were number one until the fake news rage mob at Twitter and your anti-competitive friends went after us,” Parler’s CEO John Matze said to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
They’re shutting down the President of the United States!
It is truly scary to me that these tech giants have such power over me.
They are shutting down my access to my President. That is unconscionable.
Meanwhile, President Trump is scrambling to find new media options.
