The controversial social media platform Parler announced its return to the internet on Monday, more than a month after it was forced offline for allowing inflammatory posts about the Capitol Hill insurrection.
Parler said in a statement the new site is built on “sustainable, independent technology and not reliant on so-called ‘Big Tech’ for its operations.”
The company has crossed swords with Amazon Web Services, which cut support for the company in January. Google and Apple also took aim at Parler, removing its app from their stores.
In the first week of the relaunch, Parler will be back online for people with existing accounts. New users will be able to sign up the following week.
