Parler: Twitter’s latest competitor, one of the most-downloaded apps in the US
Social media app Parler recently became one of the most-downloaded apps in the United States, thanks to Twitter flagging some of Donald Trump’s recent tweets as ‘misleading’. As per a report by SensorTower, the app saw 9.8 lakh downloads during the US election week in early November 2020.
The two-year-old app is now among the most-downloaded apps on both Apple App Store and Google Play Store in the US. The app is gaining popularity among Conservatives and right-wing supporters in the US. The advantage of Parler over Twitter is allowing users to express their opinions freely.
