UNDATED — The return of the controversial social media platform Parler could be right around the corner.
CEO John Matze told Fox News last night he’s “confident that by the end of the month, we’ll be back up.” Parler was given the boot by its website host, Amazon Web Services, one week ago over concerns it poses a risk to public safety in light of the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Both Apple and Google also banned the app from their app stores, citing “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.”
Now, Apple CEO Tim Cook is saying things could get back to business as normal if only Parler would step up and take more control over their moderation.
Matze says Parler has registered its domain with Epik and is already plotting a comeback.
Wikipedia refers to Epik as a Washington state-headquartered web hosting company known for providing services to websites that host far-right, neo-Nazi, and other extremist content.
