Parler to Incorporate as a Constitutional Republic Amid Fears Owner May Someday Pull a “Matt Drudge”
As millions of social media users flee Facebook and Twitter as their voices are being silenced, many of them are flocking to a rising start social media app called Parler. In the last ten days, the site has seen exponential growth causing slow-downs and error pages.
In the midst of this new craze over Parler, millions are worried that the privately-owned social media application may just be luring in all of Twitter’s users only for majority owner, Dan Bongino, to someday pull a “Matt Drudge” and backstab everyone.
“I don’t want to put all of my eggs in one basket,” Heather Shire of Northern California told Nod Daily. “I want to make sure that whatever social media platform I decide to go to will honor the basic tenets of a free society, such as free speech.”
Bongino told Nod Daily that in light of these fears, Parler will soon be incorporating as a Constitutional Republic with elections held yearly by all users for the social media platform’s leadership. All users of the platform will have the opportunity to have their voices heard.
“I want everyone to know that I am committed to free speech on my platform,” Bongino said in a press conference earlier today. “Anyone who may be concerned that Parler will silence them in the future can put those concerns to rest.”
Bongino also promised that as majority owner, even though he would have the sole authority to change the Articles of Incorporation from a Constitutional Republic at any time, he would never do that.
