The alternative Twitter Speak he is still trying to react to the ostracism that all the Silicon Valley companies are showing towards him by now. Last weeks Google and Apple removed the platform’s app from their digital stores just before Amazon pulled the plug on the servers, effectively leaving the site offline for all Trump followers and other registered users; however, the latter are the results victim of a hacker attack carried out against the site shortly before it forcibly closed its doors: a computer researcher was able to download every single message and profile from the portal, including potentially incriminating information such as photographs of the attacks on Congress taken on January 6, published on the site and already deleted before the stop imposed by Amazon.
The amount of information stolen amounts to 70 terabyte – an unimpressive figure but which for Parler’s size represents a serious blow: it is in fact more than 99 percent of the data present on the servers and published by users, including private content, profiles and information that were no longer even publicly accessible users when the site was still online. Theft can be problematic for all those who have committed crimes documenting them on Parler in recent days: according to the analysis of the security analysts of the Digital Forensic Research Lab, Parler is one of the platforms that has benefited the most violent fringes of Trump supporters in coordinating the assault on Congress on January 6.

However, even the majority of users who have not committed crimes find themselves in an uncomfortable position: on the one hand, the platform it is still inaccessible and looking for a new home; on the other hand, his almost perfect archive could soon be archived online for future reference of what Parler was in his early years – or at least that’s the intention of the hacker who perpetrated the attack.
