The social network Parler, a popular social network among Donald Trump supporters, announced on Monday that it had restarted after being forced to go offline for inciting platform violence.
Paller, a self-proclaimed “free speech social network”, was censored after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Apple and Google withdrew the network’s applications from the download platform, and Amazon’s web hosting service also lost contact.
Interim CEO Mark Meckler said in a statement: “Parler aims to provide a social media platform that protects freedom of speech and values privacy and citizen discourse.”
He added that although “those who want to silence tens of millions of Americans” have gone offline, the network is determined to return.
Parler, which claims to have 20 million users, said it has attracted users who already have its apps. New users will not be able to access until next week.
On Monday, some users reported on other social networks that they had trouble connecting, including owners of Apple devices.
In the January 6th attack, Donald Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, which subsequently raised questions about the influence of Trump and far-right groups on social media.
The former president was banned from Facebook and Twitter for inciting riots in the US Capitol.
Meckler said: “Paler is managed by an experienced team and will stay here. We will develop into a major social media platform dedicated to freedom of speech, privacy and civil dialogue.”
Nevada’s Parler (Parler) was launched in 2018, and its operation is very similar to Twitter, and its personal information is “parleys” instead of tweets.
In the early days, the platform attracted the support of ultra-conservative and even extreme right users. Since then, it has signed more traditional Republican voices.
Soon after the fatal attack on the U.S. Capitol, Parler fired its chief executive, John Matze.
