After a fatal riot in the US Capitol last week, Amazon Web Services decided to suspend Parler’s cloud hosting service. Since then, other social media platforms Parler filed a lawsuit against Amazon.
Parler is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Amazon Web Services (AWS) from being threatened, and claims that Amazon Web Services violated the Sherman Antitrust Act in the document.
After Amazon cloud suspension, social media platform PARLER darkened
Parler claims that it is discriminated against because it directly competes with social media giant Twitter.
“Last month, the defendant Amazon Web Services, Inc. (“AWS”) and the popular social media platform Twitter signed a multi-year agreement so that AWS can support the delivery of millions of tweets per day. AWS is currently offering the same to Parler Service. This is Twitter’s conservative Weibo alternative and competitor.”
“When Twitter announced a permanent ban on President Trump’s withdrawal from its platform two days ago, conservative users began to flee Twitter in large numbers to promote Parler. The number of exiles was so large that the next day, yesterday, Parler became a slave The first free application downloaded from this site is Apple’s App Store.”
After AWS decided to suspend Parler’s cloud hosting services, Parler went dark early Monday.
On Monday, in an interview with “Morning with Maria”, CEO John Matze told users to “stick to it and come back” because the company figured out the way forward.

Matze said: “No one has provided any reliable information or evidence. This information or evidence shows that there are any problems on Parler that do not exist on other platforms.” “This is indeed a double standard…. We see each on Twitter. This kind of annoying threatening content, we think there are actually more, in fact, many of the content deleted from Parler still remain on Twitter, one day in the form of screenshots. So I don’t know what it is. Because this is not to make everyone equally responsible, but to give some people preferential treatment.”
At the time of the lawsuit, due to the pro-Trump riots in the U.S. Capitol, Google and Apple also took action against Parler. They were removed from the App Store on Friday for failing to mitigate “excessive content” posted by users related to the user. Suspended. Violent siege last week.
