Matze told Reuters in an interview Wednesday that he did not know when or if the newborn’s clothing would return.
“It may never be. We still don’t know, “he said, but later sounded more optimistic.
“It may take days, it may take weeks, but Parler will be back, and when we do, we will be stronger,” Parler told the news.
On Tuesday, the CEO stormed in with efforts to silence his application as “sick”
“I think it’s sick,” Matze told Fox News. “The constitution does not say that. The constitution does not uphold this by banning more than 10 million American voters on the Internet and banning people from free speech.
Parler users cannot access a Twitter-like platform because Amazon Web Services launched the site from its servers early Monday.
Apple and Google also withdrew Parler from their app stores last week over the company’s alleged inability to remove threats of violence posted by its users.
The two-year-old, which was under investigation after last week’s riots in the US Capitol, has filed a lawsuit accusing Amazon Web Services of violating the contract and violating antitrust laws for its decision to stop hosting the site.
In response, AWS said it had repeatedly warned Parler about its users’ violent posts and that the company had failed to remove them in a timely manner.
In an interview with Reuters, Matze said Parler spoke to more than one cloud computing service, but declined to disclose names, citing the likelihood that the companies involved would be harassed.
He said the best result would be if the app could be returned to Amazon.com Inc.
“It’s hard to keep track of how many people tell us we can’t do business with them anymore,” Matze said.
He said the app was also dropped from the Stripe online payment service and lost its Scylla Enterprise database, as well as access to Twilio and the Slack messaging app in the workplace.
He also said it was launched by American Express, but the company said it had no direct trade relationship with Parler, according to Reuters.
ScyllaDB and Twilio told the outlet that Parler had violated their policies because of violent content. Slack and Stripe did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.
