Amazon To Take away Parler From Internet Providers – .
Amazon has followed in the footsteps of Apple and Google and has plans to remove the conservative social platform Parler from its web services.
Parler was founded in 2018 and is considered a far-right alternative to Twitter. Numerous contributions in the app, which calls itself the “world place in the world”, pleaded for violence and encouraged participation in the attack on the US Capitol on Wednesday.
Buzzfeed reported that the online host will remove the controversial online meeting room because it is unable to “effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others”. Removing it from AWS would mean that users would not be able to access the platform through an online browser.
“Recently we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your site, all of which is against our policy. It is clear that Parler does not have an effective process to ensure compliance with the AWS Terms of Service, ”said an email from Buzzfeed.
“[W]We cannot provide services to customers who cannot effectively identify and remove content that promotes or incites violence against others. Because Parler is unable to comply with our Terms of Service and poses a very real public safety risk, we plan to lock Parler’s account effective Sunday, January 10th at 11:59 p.m. PST. “
Apple banned Parler from the App Store following Google’s approach: “Our platform has no place for threats from violence and illegal activities” – update
Although Parler will be dark from Sunday night, it is unclear when or if it will return to Amazon Web Services.
The suspension comes shortly after Apple and Google announced that they would be banning Parler from their respective app stores. Reddit also announced on Friday that it had one of the platform’s pro-Trump subreddits, r / donaldtrump, following the attacks on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday and the president’s failure to effectively denounce his supporters who stormed the historic building , has banned.
Trump has also been limited to a list of platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and TikTok.
