Parler, a two-year-old social network has exploded in popularity in recent weeks. Parler is an American microblogging and social networking service, which experts have said could play a part in promoting disinformation and radicalization. Eric Heinze, Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary University of London, said: "We don't know how big Parler is going to be five years from now. We don't know how it might start interfacing subtly with Twitter or Facebook. There are so many unknowns. So I'd be cautious about dismissing it."
