Amazon bans Parler from its web hosting service

Amazon has also suspended the Parler from its web hosting platform, with effect from Monday midnight. This comes as a third blow to the social networking app after Google and Apple banned it from their respective app stores.

According to The Verge, this development come after the accusations that the social media app was fostering calls to violence ahead of, and following, the raid on the US Capitol. Parler's CEO John Matze said that the site could be offline for up to a week Matze said that the company had prepared for such an event, "by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products." 

He further accused Tech Giants Amazon, Google, and Apple of a coordinated attack to kill competition. "We were too successful too fast, Matze wrote. "You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don't count us out." Now, unless Parler finds another web hosting service, it will go offline following Sunday night.
