Conservative meme-maker Benny Johnson took to Twitter in June with an announcement. After amassing hundreds of thousands of followers on the platform, he was done with it, having come to see Twitter as a “communist gulag dumpster fire.”
“10 years on Twitter,” Johnson tweeted. “I’m done. Disgusted with the censorship on this platform. Twitter is now so aggressively ANTI Free Speech, it’s not fun anymore.”
Having laid out his case, Johnson urged his fans to join Parler, the latest conservative social media network pitching itself as a “free speech” alternative for conservatives who feel the social media giants are biased against them.
A few months later, though, Johnson appears to be finished with Parler too. And, wouldn’t you know it, he’s back in the communist gulag dumpster fire that is Twitter dot com. Johnson, the chief creative officer of young conservative group Turning Point USA, hasn’t posted on Parler
