(2) A social networking service service similar to Twitter that was introduced in 2018. Parler features uncensored free speech and attracts a conservative and alt-right audience. Parler visits surged in mid-2020 when Twitter began to flag President Trump's tweets. However, in January 2021, Amazon stopped hosting Parler on its AWS cloud, causing members to open accounts with Gab, a service catering to a comparable clientele. The word parler means "to speak" in French. See alt-right, Gab and social networking service.
