Parler is the social media platform to popular with American users which virtually disappeared after the U.S. Capitol riot. It is re-launched on Monday with its new platform on sustainable, independent technology. The relaunch Parler appointed Mark Meckler as its interim Chief Executive.
Despite the relaunch, the website was not available for users. The app was not available for download on mobile stores run by Apple and Google, which was earlier banned by the app. Several users complain they were unable to access the service. Some users said they could access their existing accounts.
It once had over 20 million users which bring its current users back online in the first week and open to new users the next week. It was founded in 2018 and styled itself as a “free speech-driven” space.
Amazon.com also suspended Parler from its web hosting service. Parler’s new technology cut its reliance on “so-called Big Tech” for its operations. Parler uses CloudRoute LLC as its new host and replaced Amazon with open-source Ceph.
