Social media platform Parler wins over millions as some raise red flags about the site

Ann-Cherie Harden opened an account on Parler a year ago, long before the social media platform became a big hit, particularly among conservatives and supporters of President Donald Trump.

“I did that then so I would have a means of communication if Facebook and Twitter decide to monitor or censor private posts and try to control what I can share,” the Whittier woman said, adding that she now sees many others have joined her on the platform billing itself as “the world’s town square.”

Harden is not imagining it. Parler is getting more crowded.

The lure of free speech

In July, Parler had a reported 2.8 million users. Within a week of the Nov. 3 election, however, that number had grown to more than 8 million. That week alone, Parler gained more than 3.5 million users, putting it at the top of Apple’s App Store list of free apps. Other

Computer Patch ‘stands a chance against Classique Legend’ if he wins on Sunday: Karis Teetan | HK Racing

A loss to Wishful Thinker is not the sort of form likely to stack up against the world’s equal fourth-best racehorse but Karis Teetan believes a big performance from Computer Patch this weekend will leave him primed to hold his own against Classique Legend on international day.

Wishful Thinker’s win in last month’s Group Two Premier Bowl did little to inspire confidence in how the local brigade will stack up against Everest winner Classique Legend, who was the equal-best rated sprinter in the recently released Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings.

But the two horses most likely to improve from that race are Hot King Prawn, who finished fourth first-up, and runner-up Computer Patch and Teetan is confident the latter can lay down a marker in Sunday’s Group Two Jockey Club Sprint (1,200m).

“He is definitely an improving horse and I have no doubt he will put in a good performance,”
