Apple joined Google Play on Saturday in suspending Parler, the “free speech” social media platform preferred by supporters of President Donald Trump, from its app shop for failing to effectively moderate and get rid of hazardous and harmful material.

” Parler has not promoted its commitment to moderate or get rid of damaging or hazardous material motivating violence and illegal activity, and is not in compliance with the App Shop Evaluation Standards,” the Apple Evaluation Board said in a letter sent to Parler.

” For these factors, your app will be gotten rid of from the App Store up until we get an upgrade that is compliant with the App Store Review Standards and you have demonstrated your capability to efficiently moderate and filter the hazardous and hazardous material on your service,” the letter stated.

Newsweek reached out to Parler for remark.

Google stated it suspended Parler because it violated its policy against apps that motivate violence.

Apple told Parler on Friday to “get rid of all objectionable material from your app … as well as any content referring to damage to individuals or attacks on federal government facilities now or at any future date,” or face elimination from the app shop in 24 hours.

In a previous letter to Parler, Apple asked the app to file a plan to restrict content.

Parler CEO John Matze railed against the decision and implicated Apple of stopping working to use the exact same requirements that it is needing of his app.

Conservatives, who support Trump’s claims that prevalent voter scams triggered his election defeat to President-elect Joe Biden, have actually been signing up to Parler in droves in recent weeks to avoid the censorship of mainstream networks like Facebook and Twitter. Lin Wood Parler
