Parler CEO John Matze told Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that the social media app has seen a "massive explosion in growth" this year as more people reject prominent Silicon Valley rivals "where moderation seems to be the norm."

"We are seeing a massive explosion in growth because people trust that Parler is going to do the right thing," Matze told "Tucker Carlson Tonight." 

TWITTER RIVAL PARLER IS IN THE POST-ELECTION SPOTLIGHT. HERE'S WHY

"So, as opposed to these other companies where moderation seems to be the norm, on Parler we have a community jury," he explained. "This is where the people decide what is allowed and what's not allowed."

San Francisco-based Twitter is facing renewed backlash for labeling or removing more than 50 of President Trump's tweets since Election Day, fueling criticisms from conservatives that social media platforms with largely liberal workforces are suppressing right-leaning viewpoints.

The community jury is what makes Parler different.

"You are judged by your peers just like our government allows for people," the CEO said. "You are innocent before proven guilty, unlike these other platforms that are colluding to, I guess, find things to find you guilty for."

PARLER CEO SAYS SURGE IN USERS SHOWS 'PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF CENSORSHIP'

Parler takes a far more laissez-faire approach, offering a platform where users, "liberated from restrictions," can publically express their ideas. 

 "We just want to sit back and say 'social media was supposed to be about the people. It was supposed to be about people having a free voice, being able to be, you know, liberated from restrictions,'" Matze said. "And so that's what we are here to offer is a community town square for people to have discussions."

Parler became the No. 1 most-downloaded app on Apple's App Store during the week of Election Day and No. 2 on Google Play, as Republican frustration with dominant social media platforms continues to escalate. Parler's membership, while significantly smaller than Twitter's, is expanding at a swift pace as prominent Republican users join the platform. 

"You mention that Parler was a little bit smaller than Twitter but you know we do have people that have comparable if not larger followings on Parler than they do on Twitter and they are seeing far more engagement," Matze said.

"There’s a mutual algorithm here you get what you sign up for. That's it. You get what you expect. That's why we are seeing such great engagement because it's not being curated like publishers would do is unlike they are on these other platforms."

Carlson asked Mazte how he plans to maintain his "posture" and avoid caving to Big Tech standards as the company grows. 

FACEBOOK, TWITTER TAKE HEAT DURING HEARING OVER HUNTER BIDEN REPORT

"Well, when you go out in public people say crazy things all the time," Matze responded. "Everybody has opinions and some of them might not be the norm, right? It's not against the law to have those opinions. It's not against the law to express yourself, you know. And if you like one political candidate or another or you believe or don't believe in climate change or whatever it might be, you know, you shouldn't be taken offline because of it."


PARLER CEO: 'THE SOCIAL DILEMMA' RAISES IMPORTANT ISSUES, BUT REACHES 'CRAZY CONCLUSIONS'

Addressing his critics, Mazte asked, "Do you believe that we should have somebody in, you know, New York, let's say in the middle of Times Square telling you what you can and cannot say? Because that's what these companies are doing."

With 88.9 million followers, Trump is among Twitter's most widely tracked users as well as a prolific poster. Matze told Fox News last week that he is "not sure" if Trump will join Parler but that he would "love to have him."

On Tuesday, the president's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump announced that she had joined the platform and encouraged her 10.1 million followers to follow suit. 

Fox News' Audrey Conklin contributed to this report.
