Parler re-emerges via independent technology


Parler, a social media service popular with right-wing users in America that disappeared after the u.S. Capitol riots were relaunched On Monday, its new platform is built on sustainable and independent technology.

In a statement announcing the relaunch, parler also said that she had appointed Mark Meckler as its interim CEO, replacing John Matze, who was sacked by the Board this month.

Parler was suspended after top service providers who accused the app of failing to monitor violent content related to the Deadly January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol were blocked by followers of then-President Donald Trump.

Despite the reboot, the site was not yet open to many users, and the app was not available for download through mobile stores run by Apple and Google, which had previously banned the app.

While many users took to Twitter to complain about not being able to access the service, a few other users said they could access their current accounts.

Parler, who once confirmed that it has more than 20 million users, said it will return its existing users to the Internet in the first week and will be open to new users next week.

Founded in 2018, the app has designed itself as a free-speech space that has largely attracted American conservatives who do not agree with content rules across other social media sites.

Last month, Amazon suspended Parler from its web hosting service, which led to the removal of the site, and Parler said Monday that its new technology has reduced its reliance on large technology for its operations.

Parler appears to be using the cloud route as its new host and has replaced Amazon with the open source software platform Ceph.

"Parler manages an experienced team that exists to survive, and is supported by hedge fund investor Robert Mercer and conservative political commentator Dan Bongino," Said Meckler.
