Trump Supporters Are Flocking to These Social Media Platforms Following Shutdowns
The social media platform known as Parler, which has been mostly used by conservatives, was even shut down after continued posts sought to "incite ongoing violence," causing many Trump supporters to hop on other apps.
New users on Gab
One of the new platforms, known simply as "Gab," reportedly added over 600,000 new users in just one weekend.
Gab claims to be a "champion of free speech, individual liberty, and the free flow of information," which is very similar to Parler's mission.
Another social media platform conservatives are using is MeWe, which has a goal of "uplifting next-gen social network with awesome social features and No BS. No Ads, No Targeting, No Newsfeed manipulation."
MeWe has reportedly added nearly 400,000 new users every day since Saturday.
Some other existing platforms have also been seeing a rapid increase in their user bases ever since Trump was removed from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
