Apple Inc. And Amazon.com Inc. Has stalled Parler’s support, a major setback to a social-media service that has grown in popularity among conservatives and by tech giants to pursue a campaign to regulate content that they consider dangerous I see Mob attack on US Capitol.
Amazon said it would not provide cloud-computing services to the parlor on Saturday, and Apple suspended the company’s app from the App Store. The two companies said Parler has not demonstrated in recent conversations that she can adequately address the threats of violence on stage.
“We have always supported various points of representation on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for violence and threats of illegal activity,” Apple said in a statement. “Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the spread of these threats to protect people.”
The announcements from Amazon and Apple come a day after Alphabet Inc.’s Google suspended the parlor from its Play Store app marketplace, citing a breach of requirements for adequate moderation of content for the apps it distributes. Google’s move did not affect Parler’s availability in the Internet or other Android app stores, Google said.
Interest in Parler has increased since November as large social-network operators such as Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. have become more aggressive in pollution content. On Friday, Twitter banned the personal account of President Trump, sparking criticism from online conservatives who felt the effort against him was biased.
