Massive, Unexpected Growth On New Free Speech Platform, Bypassing Shadow Bans—Parler CEO John Matze
Today we sit down with Parler co-founder and CEO John Matze, who seeks to re-create social media into what is, in his eyes: a true public square. We look at the world of social media through his eyes, and discuss his hopes for this budding new platform.
We also talk about what it is about Parler that led to an influx of hundreds of thousands of Saudi Arabian users in a matter of days?
We also discuss how social media giants are effectively taking on publisher roles instead of living up to their promise of being the public square.
