The “free speech” social networking app Parler has been suspended from Google’s Play Store after it failed to delete “egregious content”. The app has also dropped offline after losing support from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Parler states that they are an “unbiased” social media platform, and is popular among those who have been removed from Twitter.
Apple has also removed it from its App Store after previously warning to do so. Parler’s chief executive John Matze said: “We won’t cave to politically motivated companies and those authoritarians who hate free speech!”, but even their lawyers are refusing to represent them.
