Parler’s Website Back Online With Brief Message
PARLER'S WEBSITE IS BACK ONLINE WITH A BRIEF MESSAGE TO 'LOVERS AND HATERS'
(CNN) – The social network Parler was back online Sunday, after Amazon web services booted it a week ago.
In a come-back message dated Saturday, CEO John Matze writes, “Hello world, is this thing on?”
This implies Parler has a new hosting platform.
Amazon says it removed Parler after its far-right members made threats of violence.
A who-is search shows Parler’s domain is now registered to Epik.
That company works with another social network popular with the far right called Gab.
In his message, Matze speaks to what he calls “both lovers and haters.”
He says Parler is supposed to be a forum that protects privacy and enables free speech.
