Amazon Removes Talk From Web Services Deadline

Amazon has followed in Apple and Google’s footsteps with plans to kick the conservative social platform Speak from its web services.

Founded in 2018, Parler is described as a far-right alternative to Twitter. Numerous posts on the app, which touts itself as “the world’s city square,” pleaded for violence and encouraged participation in Wednesday’s attack on the US Capitol.

Buzzfeed reported that the online host will remove the controversial online gathering space for its inability to “effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others”. Removing AWS would mean that users cannot access the platform through an online browser.

“Recently, we have seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, which violates all of our terms. It is clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS Terms of Service,” indicates an email obtained by Buzzfeed.
“[W]We cannot provide services to a client who is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others. Since Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend the Parler account effective Sunday, January 10 at 11:59 p.m. PST. “

Apple suspends Talking from the App Store: “There is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activities”

While Parler is set to go dark as of Sunday night, it’s unclear when, or if, it will return to Amazon Web Services.

The suspension comes shortly after Apple and Google announced it would ban Talking from its respective app stores. Reddit also announced on Friday that it had banned one of the platform’s pro-Trump subreddits, r / donaldtrump, following Wednesday’s attacks on the U.S. Capitol and the president’s failure to effectively denounce his supporters who stormed the historic building.

Trump was also restricted on a list of platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and TikTok.
