Parler is back online with independent servers, not dependent on Big Tech

Free speech Twitter alternative Parler announced Monday that it is back online more than a month after it was removed from Amazon web servers, and that it is now serviced by private companies independent of Big Tech.

“When Parler was taken offline in January by those who desire to silence tens of millions of Americans, our team came together, determined to keep our promise to our highly engaged community that we would return stronger than ever,”  Interim Parler CEO Mark Meckler said in the announcement.

Not only was Parler removed by Amazon, Apple and Google also removed the app from their app stores to stop new users from downloading it. The companies claimed that extremists were using the site to plan and foment violence after the Capitol riot on January 6.

The Verge reported that the platform, which has 20 million users, transferred its domain registration to Epik, a company known for supporting deplatformed sites on the right, in January.

“We will thrive”

“Parler is being run by an experienced team and is here to stay. We will thrive as the premier social media platform dedicated to free speech, privacy and civil dialogue,” Meckler said.

While Parler is open to all political and other viewpoints, it has mainly drawn voices on the right so far.

Existing users of the platform will be able to access it this week, and new users will be allowed to sign up next week.

According to The Verge, old user posts and data does not appear to be available on the site, although existing user profiles are still there. Some users like Sean Hannity are already posting new content on the site.

A respite from censorship

Users have clamored for the platform to return in the wake of mass censorship of conservatives on Twitter, including a permanent ban on former President Donald Trump.

More than 70,000 Twitter accounts were removed from the site in a crackdown on QAnon dissemination after Trump’s account was banned.

While many conservative voices remain on Twitter and other Big Tech platforms, there have been a growing number that seek a platform where they will not be censored for politically incorrect views like questioning 2020 election results.

Recently, sources have said that Trump may be interested in starting his own social media platform now that he is out of office.

  1. Great ,now President Trump can talk to us , we miss him, he tells it like it is, Just so happy for your site coming back. Hopefully it will hurt Twitter financially!!🙏😊

    1. You got that right. I can’t wait to see if DJT starts Talking to us here! Big Tech lied about what was going on- on Parler. They were afraid that a lot of people were going to cancel them. Meaning that they would lose millions (if not billions) dollars. I got news for them. Welcome to the “Cancel culture”. Karma’s a b!tch!

    2. Twitter already is watching themselves destroy themselves.
      As they were deleting Accounts members were deleting their accounts.
      Only trying to help.
      Facebook got nervous after what they did to us during the Election blocking President Trump Supporters left and right.
      A lot of people deleted their accounts there too. As they delete we delete.
      This Parler back is not Don Bongino our friend. They are now Anti Trump the CEO said. Mitch McConnell is causing trouble for President Trump now.
      He is not any angel.His wife worked for President Trump I bet he liked the money though.
      McConnell and his wife involved with China.

    3. You are CORRECT! I, too, are HAPPY Parler is up and running. and a HUGE THANK YOU to whomever is financially behind Parler’s re-emergence!
      AMEN AND AMEN

  3. With all of the unprovable, biased, apparently discriminatory, and/or one-sided censorship going on, especially if questionable election results are mentioned, why hasn’t anybody sued individuals within those companies?
    Has anybody bothered to read their “About Us” and “Mission Statements”? It says one thing but they are doing something else. Isn’t that called False Advertising among other things?
    And as to election results, why hasn’t anyone DEMANDED that these politicians be put on a Lie Detector Test? No excuses no exceptions no immunity. Refusal to be considered an admission of guilt. Use very point blank questioning.
    For instance, pelosi did not have the right or authority to mail out any ballots, or to demand that they be mailed out. She knew, or by the Nature of her office, should have known that it was illegal. Such actions influenced the election. Then there’s the post office, election site deviations of protocols.

You politician’s, especially the left, it is you would is messing with OUR LIVES FOR TOO LONG NOW. You are killing America. You have no right. You are pushing too hard and it will end ugly.
