With leftist big tech seeking to ban all conservatives from the Internet, Twitter shares dropped ten percent on Monday. Meanwhile Gab grew by hundreds of thousands of new users and Parler hit Amazon filed an antitrust lawsuit.
Twitter is nearly exclusively a bastion of liberalism, now, as tens of thousands of conservatives quit the service in the last four days. With so many users deleting their accounts, the micro-blogging platform suffered a dip in its stock prices.
The ten percent drop in its share price came on the heels of its deletion and permanent ban on President Donald Trump.
But Twitter was not the only social media company to suffer in the markets. Both Amazon and Facebook also saw a drop of 1.8% and 2.5% in their share prices respectively, according to Neowin.net.
Meanwhile, free speech social media site Gab.com experienced a gain of 600,000 new users in just one day! The new users have come in so think that the service has been up and down all weekend.
Gab CEO Andrew Torba recently posted about the wealth of new users:
Fosco Marotto, the site’s Chief Technology Officer, also spoke of the exponential growth:
Also, the other free speech site, Parler, was shut down by Amazon as the giant sought to destroy the upstart social media platform.
But Parler didn’t take the deplatforming lying down. On Monday, Parler hit Amazon with an antitrust lawsuit.
In a complaint filed in federal court in Washington state, Parler said Amazon’s decision was “motivated by political animus” and designed to reduce competition to the benefit of Twitter, which is also a customer of the online retailer’s Amazon Web Services division.
Parler asked for an emergency order to reject Amazon’s shutdown of its account, saying it was the equivalent of “pulling the plug on a hospital patient on life support.”
Amazon “will kill Parler’s business — at the very time it is set to skyrocket,” the complaint said.
Of course, that is the left’s goal. These fascists want an end to free speech.
