In a further blow to the right wing social media site Amazon has informed Parler it will be shutting down their AWS services at midnight on Sunday.
In a letter sent to Parler Amazon had the following to say:
Parler has been widely used to help coordinate the attacks on the Capitol earlier this week and has been used to plan attacks again on the 17th, 19th and 20th of January ahead of President Elect Biden’s inauguration.
Parler CEO, John Matze, has been vocal about the various suspensions from Apple and Google and this new one from Amazon hasn’t gone unnoticed, labelling it an attempt to “remove free speech off the internet”
His post has incited some troubling replies with various people expressing a wish to cause harm to Amazon employees and direct threats against various AWS locations
Currently Parler has not moved it’s services from AWS so it is expected to be offline after midnight, however we sadly don’t believe it will be permanent.
