The CEO of the social media platform Parler posted a brief message on the company’s website writing, “Hello world, is this thing working?”
While the company posted a note saying that the platform will be restored after resolving the challenges it was facing.
A little more than a week ago, Apple stopped the Parler app from its app store, shortly after Google-owned Alphabet banned it from the Google Play store.
And the app is still not available for download on both platforms.
Amazon also subsequently suspended Parler from its web hosting service, which led to the site being shut down completely, as the company was unable to find a new organization to host its services.
Right-wing social media users in the United States flocked to the Parler app, along with other apps like Telegram and the social media site Gab, complaining of “more aggressive surveillance” of political comments on the main social media platforms, Twitter and Facebook.
About a week ago, Mark Matzi said, that the ban practiced by the major technology companies in the United States against the application of Parler after he was accused of facilitating communication between intruders of the Capitol building of Congress, on the sixth of January, “could lead to the company ceasing to operate completely.”
But critics complain that Parler, which recorded nearly 1.5 million downloads the weekend prior to the storming of the Capitol, was increasingly the home of violent rhetoric.
In earlier statements, Matzi argued that technology companies are trying to “falsely claim that we are somehow responsible for the events that occurred on January 6.”
He also said, “We will do our best to return to the Internet as soon as possible, but we are in a lot of trouble, because every service provider we talk to says that he will not work for us.”
