Today, Parler CEO John Matze said his company had dropped out of almost all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google terminated their social media service agreements.
“All the providers of text messaging services to e-mail providers to our lawyers also left us on the same day,” Matze told Fox News today.
Matze acknowledged that the bans could take the far-right company out of business while raising freedom of speech issues, calling it an “attack on everyone.”
“They all work together to make sure that at the same time we lose not only access to our applications, but actually shut down all our servers tonight, off the Internet,” Matze said. “They tried not only to kill the app, but to actually destroy the whole company. And not just these three companies. All text message service providers to e-mail providers to our lawyers also left us on the same day. “
The remarks come a day after Amazon dropped Parler from its servers, joining Apple and Google. They all pointed to the potential for distributing violent content on the site, which is preferred by conservatives as an alternative to Twitter and Facebook.
Matze said the services were unfairly targeted at Parler. “They are trying to falsely claim that we are in some way responsible for what happened on the 6th,”
“It would get everyone out of business,” he said of the technology bans. “This thing can destroy anyone.”
He added: “We will try to get back online as soon as possible. But we have a lot of problems because every provider we talk to says they won’t work with us. Because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, they won’t. “
