Good to see it's allowed back as it was never a fair or consistent application of the rules when twitter is just as bad or worse in some respects.

Apparently a lot of people just moved to Gab though, I don't know if the user base will return

Huge mistake.

Can't last. First time someone spots a "hateful" thread, it will be taken down.

According to the Washington Post, the version of Parler on Apple devices will be moderated with artificial intelligence to filter out hateful content, but that these comments could still be viewed on the web or other devices.

The iPhone version will be moderated

Ironic that xenophobes pick a foreign word for the name of an app (and then go on to mispronounce it).

Haha, I didn't even realize it was meant to be the French verb "to speak," I just assumed they couldn't spell "parlor!"

Wrong. Twitter had policies that they acted upon. Parler had no policies against hate speech, so it was rampant on that platform. They now have anti-hate speech policies in place. If they don't enforce them, expect them to get removed again.

Parler is a joke, they censor everything on there. Someone needs to create an app that respects free speech.

This right-wing cancel culture is getting out of hand.
