A victory against big-tech.
After going dark for a month or so, the free speech platform is reportedly back online. The interim CEO had some interesting things to say regarding their phone app.
The browser based platform is back up, but not the mobile app….. the interim CEO says this may change for at least one of the two mobile platforms, but not for the other.
Honestly, I am just glad they are back. It is a small victory, but a victory nonetheless.
Here is to hoping they continue to honor their commitment to free speech.
Take a look:
CNN Business reported:
Parler, the social network favored by conservatives, came back online Monday with a redesigned website one month after it was suspended by Amazon Web Services and effectively driven offline.
"Speak freely and express yourself openly, without fear of being 'deplatformed' for your views," Parler's homepage read. Content from before Parler vanished no longer seems to be available. In its first post on the platform Monday, Parler's own account welcomed users back and said: "We will not be canceled," followed by an emoji of a flexing bicep.
The website's return marks the reopening of the social network after revelations that some of the US Capitol rioters had organized on Parler prompted major tech platforms to cease doing business with the company.
The Hill had more:
Parler announced on Monday that it is relaunching its platform based on independent technology.
Meckler told Fox News that he thought the platform would be back on Apple’s App Store soon, but that he wasn’t interested in trying to get back on Google.
“We’re not really interested in being back on Google. They’re not for free speech; they’re anti-free speech,” Meckler said. “I anticipate we’ll be back on Apple, not so worried about Google.”
The company became the platform of choice for conservatives who felt other social media platforms were censoring right-wing content.
