(ANSA) - ROME, JANUARY 18 - The Parler website suddenly appeared online yesterday afternoon with a message from its CEO, John Matze: "Hello world, are we online?".
The message, dated January 16, suggests that the social network popular with the US far right has found a new platform after being banned from the Amazon Web following the assault on the Capitol.
According to CNN research, Parler is now registered with Epik, a company that already hosts Gab, another social network often used by members of the far right.
But a spokesperson for Epik, Robert Davis, has denied that the company is hosting Parler.
Robert Davis, a spokesperson for Epik, said the company does not provide Parler's web hosting by denouncing "any activity used to create discomfort to others based on skin alcohol, ethnicity, origin or ideas."
An update on status also appeared under Matze's message which stressed that "now is the right time to remind all of you, followers and haters, why we started this platform. We believe that privacy is fundamental and freedom of speech essential, especially suisocial. media. Our goal has always been to provide a non-partisan public square where people can exercise their rights. We will solve any challenges we face and welcome you all back soon. Civilian dialectics will not die! "
