Parler CEO: Amazon Dropped Our Service Because Trump Wanted to Join as 'Person X'

  Parler CEO: Amazon Dropped Our Service Because Trump Wanted to Join as 'Person X' Before Amazon kicked Parler offline, President Trump considered joining the social media platform under the pseudonym "Person X," Parler CEO John Matze claimed in a Wednesday court filing. Matze also said Amazon knew about Trump potentially joining the platform, popular among many conservatives, and that it was a driving force in the tech giant's decision to terminate Parler's web hosting. In the court filing, Matze said a rep for Amazon Web Services knew since early October that Trump was looking at joining Parler. The AWS rep "frequently" asked about it, Matze said, understanding that if Trump joined the service it would lead to a "surge" in new users.

" Parler will be unavailable to the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch," Parler CEO John Matze said on Saturday evening. "Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech," Matze said in a statement shared to

UPDATE: Late Saturday, Apple removed Parler from the App Store. "We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity," Apple said in a statement provided to Variety.

Amazon Web Services took the Parler servers offline on Sunday. This step took place after Google and Apple also blocked the social app for violating the terms of use. Apple justified this with a lack of moderation. For Apple devices this means a total lock, on Android there are options to bypass the delisting in the Google Play Store by offering an APK file for download. The latter is already practiced by numerous porn apps.

A Monday statement from senior vice president of communications Robert Davis, however, said the company had "had no contact or discussions with Parler in any form regarding [the] organization becoming their registrar or hosting provider.

After the attack, President Trump's accounts were blocked from Twitter , Facebook , Instagram and other social networks.

In a post on Parler on Saturday, John Matze, Parler CEO stated:

“Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight, Amazon will shut down all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech from the Internet. There's a chance Parler won't be available on the internet for up to a week as we are building from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on Amazon's proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.

AT&T, Comcast & Other Halt Political Contributions To Lawmakers Who Objected To Certification Of Electoral Vote For Joe Biden

  AT&T, Comcast & Other Halt Political Contributions To Lawmakers Who Objected To Certification Of Electoral Vote For Joe Biden AT&T, the parent company of WarnerMedia, and Comcast, parent company of NBCUniversal, are the latest corporations to halt political contributions to lawmakers who objected to the certification of the electoral vote last week in favor of Joe Biden, an event that was at the center of the siege of the Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump. “Employees on our Federal PAC Board convened a call today and decided to suspend contributions to members of Congress who voted to object to the certification of Electoral College votes this week,” AT&T said in a statement.

Publicans have proposed a plan to convince public health officials to allow bars to reopen six weeks earlier than planned . Under the Government's road map pubs are not scheduled to reopen until August

We will do our best to switch to a new provider as there are many competing for our business, but Amazon, Google, and Apple deliberately did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing that this would do the most damage, right at the time President Trump was banned from tech companies. We were too successful too quickly. You can expect the war on competition and free expression to continue, but don't count us out. ”

A number of Amazon employees advocated calling Parler out of hate speech and its role in organizing the Storm on the Capitol on Wednesday from AWS.

Matte's reference to bare metal products could hint at a contingency plan, but the CEO also noted that Parler is starting from scratch and could be out of action for up to a week.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said today in a tweetstorm that his company is exploring the development of a decentralized standard for social media. He revealed the initiative, dubbed @bluesky, in a long thread that attempted to explain Twitter’s recent and controversial deplatforming of President Donald Trump and other conservative commenters. The move by Twitter on @bluesky is one of several in the works by blockchain developers in the wake of the takedowns by social media services and providers like Amazon. The surprise is that Twitter would contribute to a concept that may lead to its own demise.
