Back with my 8,000 Parler friends. After Weeks Of Being Offline, Parler Finds A New Web Host.Social media service Parler on Monday said it is officially relaunching its platform, more than a month after it was suspended from Amazon’s web hosting services over violent posts regarding the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. This from NPR.
SkySilk, a Web infrastructure company based outside of Los Angeles, is now hosting Parler, SkySilk’s chief executive, Kevin Matossian, confirmed to NPR in an interview.
“SkySilk is well aware that Parler has received an aggressive response from those who believe their platform has been used as a safe haven for some bad actors,” Matossian said in a statement. “Let me be clear, Skysilk does not advocate nor condone hate, rather, it advocates the right to private judgment and rejects the role of being the judge, jury, and executioner.”
He said while the company many disagree with some of Parler’s content, he believes the company is taking “necessary steps” to monitor its platform.
“Once again, this is not a matter of SkySilk endorsing the message, but rather, the right of the messenger to deliver it. SkySilk will support Parler in their efforts to be a nonpartisan Public Square as we are convinced this is the only appropriate course of action,” he said in a statement.
Parler said in its statement on Monday it would bring back online its current users in the first week and would be open to new users the next week. I’ve posted about a dozen of my articles and the response has been awesome.
