1. A tropical or sub-tropical bird from the order of Psittaciformes which is comprised of some 315 species. Parrots are known for their usually bright colored plumage, large heads, short hooked bill, blunt tongues, strong feet (two in the front and two in the back), and talking and mimicking ability. They are arboreal and eat seeds and fruit. Many are kept as pets and some are endangered and threatened with extinction. Most are very intelligent creatures and contrary to the meaning of parrot as applied to humans below, parrots don't necessarily repeat words mindlessly. It has been shown in research that parrots have the ability to use words to identify objects, describe them, count them and answer questions.

2. To imitate someone. To mimic or repeat their actions or sayings without thinking.

Parrot in Internet social media terms is someone who recites information (whether aware if its correct or not) for the sake of repeating it to increase their own percieved "social standing" in an social community. Can be applicable to both a single online community (a forum) or a group of sites of communities, for example a "blogosphere."
Parrots are: bloggers who blog about social media: what it is, what it is becoming, because they read it on someone else's forum. People in automotive or other technical forums who repeat something because it "sounded right."

n. An annoying little know-it-all who, in reality, knows little to nothing. They merely sit in class, take word-for-word notes (often in very neat or girly handwriting), and learn nothing, not allowing they're mind to wander and form its own thoughts, but to wallow in the mundane of that which has already been said. They, however, do wonderfully on class assignments, homework, and tests that require no individual thought because they delve so thoroughly into the cliché. They are so-named because they are very good a mimicing what a teacher just taught back to him via class discussion or, more commonly, essays.
Teacher: So, does anybody have any thoughts about the character Simon in The Lord of the Flies?
Parrot: I think he's a Christ-like figure because he goes off and prays and doesn't want people to fight anymore.
Teacher: Right, then, let me rephrase. Anybody with any original thoughts?

The codename for a certain person that was stalked by a group called the Founders over an extensive period of time. He is known to have rather striped plumage, and is constantly accompanied by at least two or more Associates (also referred to as ducks). The Parrot is most famous by his constant absence of expression, which was often mocked by the Founders. Other nicknames include Cowboy and Watch Hill Lifeguard.
A famous quote uttered by the Parrot:

"Look! The purple letters spell my name!"

This is a social media and/or message board personality who repeats information from other sources while acting as if they are liberating your ignorance with their brilliant intellect. The sources they rep are often total shit, and they display a pathetic understanding of the concept of critical reasoning. One particular example would be the modern evangelical conspiracy theorist, who repeats information from preposterously unreliable sources, adds no new perspective, and berates any detractors with parrot phrases such as sheeple, wake up, or best of all do your research. It does also apply to thoughtless fanatics of any persuasion, political, religious, sports, music, whatever - basically an arrogant recycler of information without credibility - often causing the opposite of their own intent by being so annoying that no one wants to consider the content of their message.
I tried to tell this fucking parrot that the site he always links to is only there to sell books and advertising, and that their biased perspective was not logical and in fact impinged upon legitimate concerns, but instead of considering what I was saying he just told me to wake up. Or - I wish these parrots would keep their mouths shut, because all they seem to be good for is feeding trolls.
