A few days ago, I decided to delete my assorted — and largely unused — social media accounts. I can’t do much about Twitter, becaause they locked me out a year ago, pending my deletion of a tweet they won’t let anyone see. I’ll probably kill it just so I can kill the account. But the principle of the thing rankles.
Gab went away simply enough, as did MeWe. Then it was time to delete the Parler account.
So I logged in with my username and password. I went to settings and clicked “Delete account.” It prompted me for my password again. I entered it.
I spent a couple of days at that. Eventually I gave up and emailed Parler technical support. I received this response several hours later.
Thank you for reaching out. We’ve successfully submitted your request to have your account, associated with this email, deactivated.
I checked. The account was still up. I tried deleting it myself one more time. “Incorrect password”
I waited, and checked the account again today. It’s still there. I still can’t delete it myself.
“Successfully,” my ass.
Added: Rubbing salt in the wound, Parler?
I just checked my email.
Parler added me to their spammy mailing list. I’m gonna guess I can’t kill that either.
