Social media platform Parler is now offline after Amazon Web Services suspended the site, claiming it lacks content moderation.
The Hill reports that social media website Parler has been taken offline after its hosting account was suspended by Amazon Web Services which claimed that the site failed to adequately moderate content on its platform.
In an email to Parler, Amazon stated: “Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms. It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service.”
The email added: “It also seems that Parler is still trying to determine its position on content moderation. You remove some violent content when contacted by us or others, but not always with urgency.”
Parler CEO John Matze said in a recent statement that the site could be offline for up to a week
