TECH CRUNCH - Feb 16 - Parler, a social network adopted by the far-right and recently kicked off AWS for its userbase's habit of advocating violence, is back online. Users can now log in to Parler on the web, but when they do they will find that all their old posts and content have been removed. The new site is described in a statement as using "sustainable, independent technology and not reliant on so-called 'Big Tech' for its operations." Meanwhile, the operation is being overseen by a new interim CEO, Mark Meckler. Meckler is the founder of the Tea Party Patriots, staunch opponents of Obamacare, and big fans of debunked COVID-19 treatment hydroxychloroquine.
