Apple has suspended an American microblogging and social networking service, Parler from App Store for operating against its rules.
The conservative social media app which became a home for supporters of the U.S President, Donald Trump who was permanently banned from Twitter, had already been banned by Google on Friday.
Posts on Parler often contain antisemitism and conspiracy theories.
“We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity. Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues,” Apple announced on Saturday.
Also, Amazon said due to the fact that Parler has become a “very real risk to public safety”, it will suspend the App on Sunday.
Reacting to the development, Parler Chief Executive, John Matze condemned Amazon, Google and Apple’s decision, saying it “was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place… You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.”
