In the wake of the Jan. 6 incursion into the Capitol building, Big Tech decided to use the event as an excuse to silence conservative voices.
This eventually led to the smaller social media app Parler being effectively shut down by companies like Apple, Google and Amazon.
Now, Parler is back, and executives at the company are returning with a vengeance.
According to the Daily Caller, Amazon Web Services stopped powering Parler on Jan. 10 in response to the Capitol incursion. However, on Monday Parler announced its return with a new provider “built on sustainable, independent technology and not reliant on so-called ‘Big Tech’ for its operations.”
Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg had previously blamed Parler for playing a role in the incursion, according to a separate Daily Caller article. However, newly surfaced evidence indicates that most of the planning for the event happened on Facebook.
