Parler CEO Hopeful Platform Can Be Back by End of January
Jan 19 2021
One week after it lost access to Amazon's hosting servers, Parler's website is back online in limited form. "Apple. we called our rep, and they basically shrugged it off and made no indication that this was deadly serious, despite. their email being very serious".
Cook was reportedly fast to defend Apple's main decision to suspend the app when Wallace wondered whether or not the move amounted to a certain restriction of free speech.
Ginsberg pointed out to Apple CEO Tim Cook in a letter last July that Telegram was engaging in "extremist violence" and should therefore no longer have a platform.
A Tuesday court filing from Amazon said that the company "repeatedly" notified Parler that its content violated their agreement and requested removal, 'only to determine that Parler was both unwilling and unable to do so'. But we've never viewed that our platform should be a simple replication of the internet. "I'm confident that by the end of the month, we'll be back up", Matze toldFox News Sunday night. "We have rules and regulations and we just ask that people abide by those", he explained.
AWS said Parler was failing to moderate violent content on its site.
The website for Parler, the social media app popular with right-wing groups, returned to the internet Sunday afternoon with a message for the company's "lovers and haters". Google also removed the app from its store, while Amazon dropped it from its Web Services hosting platform.
Apple suspended all downloads of the Parler app following the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, citing postings on the platform that could incite further violence.
Apple, along with Amazon and Google, effectively kicked Parler off the internet in the wake of the January 6 US Capitol siege. "We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon", a follow-up message declares. "We will not let civil discourse perish!" Meanwhile, CSW says that Telegram has "not undertaken any meaningful actions to curb these flagrant, systematic, and continuous violations of Defendant's app guidelines by Telegram users".
The lawsuit is likely to attract criticism from both pro-Kremlin and opposition voices within Russian Federation, who also voiced condemnation after the US tech giants took actions against Trump and his supporters following the Capitol riot.
