(AFP, San Francisco, 11) Amazon.com Inc. recently warned the conservative social platform Parler that it will shut down its servers because the platform does not properly monitor violent content.The website that checked the connection today showed that Parler has been forced to go offline.
The U.S. Capitol was rushed by the public last week. President Trump was accused of incitement and was permanently suspended by Twitter, a much larger company than Parler.Subsequently, Parler's popularity has skyrocketed recently, becoming the number one free application (App) in Apple's App Store.
However, the Parler platform was flooded with messages supporting the Washington attack on the 6th and calls for another demonstration, prompting Google to remove it from the App Store on the 8th, and Apple also followed up on the 9th.
Amazon then confirmed that because Parler allowed "violent threats", it would terminate the provision of cloud hosting services.
The connection check website Down For Everyone Or Just Me showed that Parler was disconnected shortly after 0:XNUMX in the morning.This means that the industry has not been able to find a new hosting partner.
Parler CEO John Matze issued a series of posts in Parler on the 9th, stating that the website will go offline the next day, and at the same time accusing technology giants of launching a "war for freedom of speech."
Ma Ze said: "They will not win! We are the last hope for freedom of speech and freedom of information in this world."
Parler did not respond to AFP’s request for comment.
At the beginning of its establishment, this platform attracted a group of ultra-conservative and even far-right users, but now it has also attracted many more traditional Republicans.
For example, Fox News star host Sean Hannity has 760 million followers, while his colleague Tucker Carlson has 440 million followers.Elected public officials use Parler, including Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and others.
It is reported that Trump does not have a Parler profile page.
