Last week, following the U.S. The Capitol was violently attacked by U.S. supporters. A group of commercial service providers instantly cut off their services to the two-year-old social media platform, President Trump. Mats said in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, local time, that he does not know when or whether these service providers will be able to resume their services with Parler.
“It may never be restored,” he said. “As of now, we don’t know about this.” In a legal document, Parler said that it currently has more than 12 million users.
Parler is in talks with a number of providers of cloud computing services, Mats said. But he refused to disclose the name of the provider of cloud computing services he was negotiating, on the grounds that the company could be harassed. The best way, he said, is for Amazon to resume Parler’s services.
On Monday, Parler sued Amazon, as Amazon’s cloud computing service cut off Parler’s web hosting services. But the legal action taken against Parler by Amazon said it didn’t do any good. Mats claimed that Parler is also considering suing other providers who have cut off services, but he refused to provide more details.
“Parler claims to be a social media platform for the space of “free speech,” loved by US President Donald Trump’s supporters. Amazon cut off the services provided to Parler by its servers last weekend, claiming that the social media platform failed to monitor violent content effectively. In addition, Parler was also removed by Apple and Alphabet’s Google App Store.

Many Trump supporters gathered at the Parler platform to publish and spread violent statements before this violent incident.
Mats said that Stripe and American Express (American Express) online payment service companies also cut off services to Parler, and Parler also lost Scylla Enterprise’s database service. After being blocked by Twilio, Parler cannot send text messages, nor can it use Slack Services.

Twilio said Parler had violated its policy of acceptable use. Twilio will suspend its services if its social media platform can not rule out incitement to violence. In view of the ban, other service providers did not respond immediately to Reuters’ requests for comment.
