Social media app Parler goes dark as Amazon, Apple and Google pull support
Issued on: Modified:
Parler, a largely unmoderated social network popular among America's far-right movement, went dark on Monday as Amazon Web Services revoked its hosting. The platform is believed to have played a pivotal role in inciting last week's storming of the US Capitol. Amazon's move follows similar decisions by Google and Apple to remove Parler from their app stores. Also, China hits back at the US over the de-listing of Chinese telecoms shares and the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show goes online amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
