The right-wing social media application Parler is online again
Parler, a social media app popular among U.S. right-wing groups, was relaunched on Monday. The Twitter-like app was shut down by major service providers last month after the deadly U.S. Capitol Riota. Parler has been accused of leaking police violent content in connection with the attack, to which Google and Apple have banned access to their app stores. Amazon then suspended it from its web hosting service, effectively interrupting it offline. In a statement announcing the relaunch, Parler said his new platform has reduced reliance on ‘Big Tech’ for its operations. Mark Meckler has also been announced as interim CEO, replacing John Matze who was fired this month. Meckler said: ” Parler is managed by an experienced team that is there to stay. “Parler said it will bring its current users back online in the first week of the restart, and new users would open next week. Founded in 2018, Parler is styled as a space for freedom of speech and claims to have once had over 20 million users. commentator Dan Bongin.
