The news broke that Apple’s ultimatum to the social network Parler, which is favored by conservatives and extremists, is to implement a comprehensive review plan for its platform in the next 24 hours or face an ultimatum to be expelled from the App Store. Twitter is permanently banned. Donald Trump. According to a tweet on Friday afternoon, Parler is now closed and users cannot log in.
When users with Parler accounts shared screenshots showing that they could not access their feed, Twitter users were still absorbing the good news of Trump’s suspension.

With the loss of his platform on Twitter and the potential for Parler to disappear permanently, it remains to be seen how Trump communicates with his fan base.
How will Trump fight the devastating Twitter blow during the digital “combat trial”? Is it the same as losing a court trial in real life?

If you follow strict Apple guidelines, Parler may re-platform.
Parler failed. Apple just gave Parler 24 hours to “improve the review”, otherwise they will be banned by the App Store https://t.co/I1JpakRG7I
