Parler CEO John Matze on Saturday night announced that the “totally free speech” app might go offline for as much as a week from Sunday after Amazon kicked the social networks platform off its web hosting service.

On Saturday, an Amazon Web Solutions (AWS) Trust and Security group informed Parler that it would stop hosting the app efficient Sunday, January 10 at 11: 59 p.m. PST, after the U.S. Capitol was stormed by a pro-Trump mob that utilized the platform to prepare their attacks, according to Buzzfeed News.

Matze told users that it’s possible “Parler will be unavailable to the internet for approximately a week as we rebuild from scratch,” according to a screenshot shared by Parlertakes.

” Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to totally get rid of totally free speech,” Matze said in a declaration shared to Parler.

Amazon’s decision came after Google Play and Apple suspended Parler from its app shops for stopping working to adequately moderate and get rid of hazardous and damaging content.

On the same day, Apple told Parler to “get rid of all objectionable material from your app” or face elimination from the shop, and offered the app 24 hours to submit a plan to restrict content.

” Your action also references a moderation plan ‘for the time being,’ which does not satisfy the ongoing requirements in Standard 1.2– Security– User Created material,” Apple said in a letter to Parler revealing the suspension.

Conservatives, consisting of those that support Trump’s unproven accusation that prevalent citizen scams caused his election defeat to President-elect Joe Biden, have actually been turning to Parler in recent months to circumvent Facebook and Twitter censorship.
