Facebook last week “indefinitely” suspended President Trump and Twitter went a step further, banning him forever from its service, following the attack on the U.S. Capitol by scores of the president’s supporters. Soon after, Google and Apple both pulled Parler, a social media app popular among conservatives and used by some of the rioters, from their app stores; while Amazon yanked Parler’s web hosting services, pushing the platform completely offline on Monday and Tuesday.
