Yesterday, Google announced the removal of the social network application Parler from its Google Play store, and today Apple followed suit and removed the application from its App Store, and as is the case with Google, Apple made a statement about this step and it was as follows:
“We have always supported the diverse viewpoints that are represented in the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity, and here Parler did not take appropriate measures to address the spread of these threats to the safety of people, and as a result we suspended the application from the App Store until it is done. Solve the problem”.
And the matter did not stop there, as the network will suffer from a bigger and more serious problem, by suspending Parler’s web hosting from this day, and this will prevent the network from fully functioning, and although Amazon has not released a statement on this issue, except An email has been obtained that says:
“We continue to respect Parler’s right to determine what content will be permitted on her site herself, however, we cannot provide services to a client who is unable to effectively identify and remove content that promotes or incites violence against others,” she continued:
“Since Parler cannot comply with our Terms of Service and pose a very real risk to public safety, we are planning to suspend Parler’s account as of Sunday 10 January, while ensuring that all data is kept for relaying to the network’s servers.”
Finally, the message from Amazon contained some screenshots of Parler’s posted content, as examples of posts that violate Amazon’s Terms of Service Against Violence.
