Great article. While users being shocked that Parler isn’t the privacy-oriented, technologically savvy, freedom of speech paradise that some have claimed, I’m convinced that conservatives won’t ever switch platforms in any serious capacity.
Conservative messaging today is about outrage and victimization. I think they would find themselves thoroughly unhappy to have a platform where no one is outraged at them and they can’t claim victimhood. They thrive on that attention like a fire thrives on oxygen. Remove it? They’ll wither away into obscurity.
