For this that don’t know, Parler is a right-wing social media platform that describes itself as a “free speech” alternative to mainstream platforms. After being locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts last week due to antisemitic remarks, Kanye West had agreed to purchase Parler.
If the deal goes through, then that will put the rapper in direct competition with Elon Musk who proposed to buy Twitter earlier this year. Elon Musk even took to Twitter to troll his future rival by signaling that both Parler and Twitter are going to go head-to-head.
It will be interesting what changes Kanye West will bring to platform once he takes over. We will have to wait and watch if and when Parler and Twitter go head-to-head with each other.
