    Censorship and ideological authoritarianism on Twitter and Facebook has led to a major shift in use to the free speecn site Parler. Since Friday 4.5 million new users have signed up on Parler and the Parler app has become the number one download at the Apple App Store. Daily activity on Parler has also exploded to ten times what it was a week ago with 5 million posts a day.

    The iron fist of censorship has become pervasive at both Twitter and Facebook, and users are tired of it. Parler offers a viable free speech alternative and those who value freedom are gravitating to it. The staffs of both Facebook and Twitter are riddled with far left activists and they actively suppress conservative content or any content that deviates from the far left narrative

    The CEO's of Twitter an Facebook want to stifle discussion and that is un-American
