Parler, the website that has been censored by Big Tech has appeared to come back online on January 17.
A message from its CEO, John Matze, wrote on a landing page: “Hello world, is this thing on?”
Parler had likely found a new hosting service following Amazon Web Services, kicking them off when the app gained popularity after Twitter mass suspended thousands of accounts including the United States President, Donald J. Trump.
The kick was due to lack of moderation on its platform, and the fallout of January 6 where protestors breached the Capitol. Google and Apple had removed Parler from their app stores over the moderation flags.
According to court documents, Amazon was concerned whether Trump would relocate his social media following to Parler after his Twitter account was suspended last week.
The freedom social media platform asked a federal court in Washington, D.C., to block Amazon’s decision to ban them so quick. Defending that Amazon engaged in ‘monopolistic practices’ — Twitter is a client of Amazon Web Services.
Parler acts as a free speech platform that values its target base for rights to express online without being feared as Censored out of the blue for interacting with posts on other social media platforms resulting in a permanent ban.
“Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform. We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media.”
“Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise their rights to both.”
“We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!”
Parler accordingly is hosted by Epik, which alternative social mediate site Gab uses as WHOIS reports.
