Owners of the Parler social networking site, launched as an alternative to Twitter microblogging, are suing Amazon, which provides a technology platform for them, as the web service division (AWS) of the world’s largest e-commerce company, along with other Internet communications giants, Twitter, Google and Apple. last weekend made the service inaccessible to users overnight. Google and Apple have previously removed the app from their online stores.
Proponents of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump have leaked from the mainstream community platforms that have blocked them to Parler, which provides uncensored expression, although Trump himself has not signed up. Amazon says the plethora of posts incites violence, and they can’t tolerate that. Now that this communication channel is also clogged, Parler has filed a lawsuit in federal court against its web service provider for violating antitrust laws, asking for its original status to be restored.
AWS’s decision to cut us off the net was clearly motivated by political hatred. But it is also clear that the move will reduce competition in the microblogging service in favor of Twitter
– stands in the action. John Matze, CEO of Parler, criticized the coordinated attack by the three internet giants, which he said is directed against freedom of speech and free competition, respectively.
Amazon did not delay the response either. In his statement, he stated that Parler’s claim was unfounded. – AWS provides technology and services to users across the entire policy spectrum, and we respect Parler’s right to what content is allowed to appear. However, it is clear that a significant amount of content is about inciting violence against others, and Parler is unable or unwilling to immediately recognize and remove such content that violates our Terms of Service. ”
AWS also recalled that Parler had been aware of their concerns for weeks, but that the amount of so-called dangerous content was steadily increasing, leading to a suspension of service on Sunday night. Amazon also listed examples, according to which Parler’s posts incited the killing of Democrats, Muslims, Black Lives Matter activists and journalists in the mainstream media.
