Parler Deplatformed

Parler, the social media platform popular with conservatives, could be offline longer than expected after a handful of Big Tech companies have sought to distance themselves from the platform.

Amazon was the latest Big Tech company to shut down its operations with Parler, which the social media platform relied on for cloud computing power. The platform alternative to Twitter has been attacked for not doing enough to stop or block posts inciting violence in the aftermath of the attack on the Capitol last week.


Amazon told Parler that they would stop providing cloud services as the clock hit midnight on the West Coast Monday morning, according to CNBC.

Parler CEO John Matze previously said the website could be reconfigured and back online again come Monday, but he warned that if things went badly, it could take about a week. It appears that the latter will be more realistic given, as Matze claims, other partners dropped their support from the company following Apple, Amazon, and Google's lead.
