Parler, a social media network popular with loyalists of former U.S. president Donald Trump, said the site is now accessible, according to Agence France-Presse Tuesday after it was dropped in January by Amazon Web Services over postings by users that could incite violence.
Parler, which calls itself "the free speech social network," relaunched on Monday after more than a month offline, using a new web hosting service, the company said.
Parler, with a retooled community guideline, has more than 20 million users and was first launched in August 2018. It came under scrutiny following the riots on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
The guidelines are "viewpoint neutral" and will use an algorithm and human moderators to regulate content that threatens or incites violence, the Nevada-based Parler said.
Additionally, Parler said a "trolling filter" will be set up in which content that attacks someone based on race, sexual orientation or religion will be covered up.
Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook over the incitement of rioters in the siege of the U.S. Capitol.
The change at Parler follows Amazon Web Services' unexpected step last month of refusing to host the site over a pattern of hateful posts that it reportedly refused to remove.
"Parler was built to offer a social media platform that protects free speech and values privacy and civil discourse," AFP quoted interim chief executive officer Mark Meckler as saying in a statement.
Parler's relaunch wasn't all smooth. The site appeared to operate at a snail's pace for people who accessed it using a computer. Inquiries to Parler by FOX Business were not returned.
Parler also remains in an uncertain position. Google and Apple have not restored the Parler app to their stores while the site still fights an ongoing lawsuit against Amazon.
John Matze, Parler's previous chief executive, said he was sacked early this month and the company is now in the process of searching for a candidate to fill the permanent CEO position.
