Amid ever-increasing censorship from Big Tech giants, one top conservative personality is about to make a big social media switch.
“I’ve been restricted and censored on Facebook. Please make sure you transition to Parler ASAP as I will be leaving Facebook probably by the end of the year,” Levin tweeted Wednesday.
He included a screenshot of a restriction from Facebook that reads: “Your Page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news. People will also be able to see if a Page has a history of sharing false news.”
“I’ve had it”
As noted by the Washington Examiner, this has been a long time coming for Levin, as he has spoken about the censorship issues he has been having with Facebook for a number of months.
In October, he tweeted a message sent to him by Facebook that said it was reducing the distribution of his page after a “third party fact checker” said he was spreading “false news.”
“It’s a clear effort at censorship,” Levin tweeted. “Every link I post is from a legitimate source. Because so many people are seeing what I’m posting and we’re within weeks of the election it’s clear that Facebook is trying to influence the election’s outcome. It’s also clear Facebook is pushing a left-wing agenda. I’ll address this tonight on radio.”
On another occasion earlier this month, Levin expressed his frustration with Facebook saying, “I’ve had it with Facebook. They can do what they want. We will continue to simultaneously post so it’ll be in all three places, but I won’t be looking at Facebook anymore. If you want to make comments, you should go to Parler, or you should go to Twitter.”
Now, it appears that Levin has plans to just leave the social media giant altogether.
A new home
Along with a number of other conservatives who are fed up with censorship from Twitter and Facebook, Levin is now encouraging his followers to relocate to Parler.
Parler is a social media app that is similar to Twitter but without the censorship. It is partially owned by Fox News contributor Dan Bongino and is backed by conservative billionaire Rebekah Mercer, the Examiner reported.
Parler CEO John Matze said that he expects Parler to “outpace” Twitter at some point within the next year.
