NEW YORK (US) – The chief executive of social media platform Parler, posted a brief message on the company’s website. The platform which is popular among American right-wing users had virtually vanished after the U.S. Capitol riot.
“Hello world, is this thing on?,” Matze asked in a message dated Saturday, posted above a note from the company saying the platform would be restored after challenges were resolved. Parler’s app, however, remains offline.
Parler was suspended by Apple Inc from its App Store, shortly after Alphabet-owned Google banned it from Google Play. The app is still unavailable for download on both platforms.
Amazon.com Inc then suspended Parler from its web hosting service, effectively taking the site offline unless it can find a new company to host its services.
