The future looked bright for alternative social media company Parler a few months ago. They were gaining steam as an alternative to Twitter, extremely popular with conservatives and supporters of President Trump.
Those days are over, and according to Parler CEO John Matze, their very existence is up in the air. The first bomb to drop came when Apple, Amazon and Google all ended their agreements with the service. What followed was the collateral damage, which literally could put them out of business.
“Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze said on Fox News Sunday.
“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they’re actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze added. “They made an attempt to not only kill the app, but to actually destroy the entire company. And it’s not just these three companies. Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day.”
Parler has a tough battle to fight. Matze said they will try to get back online as quickly as possibly, but they face major resistance because almost all of their vendors simply refuse to work with them for one simple reason; Apple, Google, and Amazon have all bailed on them.
