Parler’s CEO John Matze said the site “will likely be down longer than expected,” adding that “most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us.” Apple suspended the Parler app from the App Store on Saturday, following Google who removed it from the Google Play Store on Friday.
Parler goes offline following suspensions by Amazon, Apple, and Google
The site went offline shortly after midnight, Pacific Time, in the early hours of January 11.
From an interview with Fox Business this Monday, CEO John Matze said
I’ll have come up with brand new servers our wise Parler will be out of business.
Parler was the 1# App on Apple’s IOS Store and Google Play Store, Which receives so many great reviews, Parler, a Social Media competitor to Twitter and Facebook. Which a platform that advocates free speech on their platform. Apple’s discussion to take off the platform was the fact that after the DC Riot event happened after Jan 6th. Following Google’s removal of the Play Store.
Amazon told Parler of its decision late Saturday, in a letter to chief policy officer Amy Peikoff. Its Amazon Web Service (AWS) “cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others,” the letter to Peikoff states, adding that Parler “poses a very real risk to public safety.”
Which, I myself that registered to Parler. I can confirm any of the members on Parler did not organize the DC rally. Nor it show a threat to public safety whatsoever! There was no evidence on the platform that encouraged violent attempts.
What this week shows that Big Tech giants do not like competition
Nor the freedom of ideas. Amazon, Apple, and Google. Honestly!, censorship does work somehow this comes to shows hosting your platform on Amazon’s AWS is not safe for small businesses. Which discourages anyone that wants to start their platforms from the ground up. Have your site hosted on Amazon is a clear sign not to use AWS! You can host your platform yourself off your own host. Which I recommend small business to do it!
