San Francisco – Parler, the social network that Attracted millions of Trump supporters Returns online after one month, before disappearing from Internet Amazon and other tech giants cut the company To host the call for violence around the time of the Capitol riot.
Being separated from the tech giants, Parler turned to Celebre, a cause for conservatives who complained that they were being censored, as well as a test case for the openness of the Internet. It was unclear whether the social network, which positioned itself as a free speech and lightly-powered site, could survive after being blacklisted by the largest tech companies.
For weeks, the answer appeared to be no. But on Monday, for the first time since January 10, typing parler.com into a web browser returned a page to log into the social network – a move that required several weeks of work by the small company and led to He left. Of its chief executive.
Parler officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday.
It was unclear how Parler hosted its site on the computer server, how the central technology outlined any website. Many large web-hosting companies previously rejected it. For other services needed to run a large website, Parler relied Help from a russian firm Once worked for the Russian government and a Seattle firm that once supported a neo-Nazi site.
Parler’s return appeared as a triumph of small companies challenging Big Tech’s dominance. The company sought to create its plight about the power of companies such as Amazon, which stopped hosting Parler’s website on its computer servers, and Apple and Google, which removed Parler’s mobile app from its App Store.
Parler had become the center of right-wing dialogue for the past year, as millions of people from far and wide came to the stage as censorship of conservative voices by Facebook, Twitter and Google. Most of Parler’s content was benign, but due to the Capitol riot on 6 January a few months ago, the site hosted calls for violence, indecent language and misinformation.
A few days after the riots, Amazon, Apple and Google said they had cut the parlor because it showed that it could not consistently enforce its own rules against posts that incited violence. Apple and Google have said that they will allow Parler’s app to be returned if the company can prove that it can effectively police its social network.
After Amazon booted up the parlor from its web-hosting service, Parler sued her, alleging it to be an antitrust violation and breaking her contract. A federal judge said last month that Amazon’s contract allowed the service to terminate and to force the company to host Parler, as requested by the start-up.
Parler had over 15 million users when it went offline and was one of the fastest growing apps in the United States. It is heavily financed by Rebekah Mercer, one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Republican Party.
Parler co-founder and CEO John Matt said earlier this month She was effectively fired by Ms. Mercer Disagreement on how to run the site. Ms. Mercer has hired Mark Mechler, a prominent voice in the Tea Party movement, to run the parlor.
