Parler, a free speech social network that garnered popularity following its use by Donald Trump, former US president, has returned online — about one month after it was shut down.
Trump had earlier migrated to Parler after Facebook and Twitter suspended his accounts over his comments on the violence that rocked US Capitol Hill in January.
Google had also followed suit by removing the social network from its app store over its alleged failure to delete “egregious content” pushed by Trump.
While the dust surrounding Google’s removal of Parler had yet to settle, Amazon had disconnected the social network from its servers on January 10.
The development had stirred controversies, with Parler instituting a lawsuit against Amazon for not giving it the required notice before carrying out the termination.
But according to New York Times, the free speech social network, which has over 15 million users before going offline, returned after slight moderation to its website.
Checks by TheCable Lifestyle on Monday showed that the social network is back online.
Parler, it was gathered, will face an uphill task for survival in the coming days following its face-off with other tech giants which resulted in its blacklisting.
Its return was said to have come amid rejection from several renowned web-hosting firms — fuelling an intense debate on how the social network was able to come through with hosting on computer servers.
