The website for Parler, the conservative-friendly social media platform, was back online on Sunday — with a message for the company’s “lovers and haters.”
“Hello world, is this thing on?” Parler CEO John Matze wrote on the website, above a note from the company saying the platform would be restored after challenges were resolved.
“Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform,” the note read.
“We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise their rights to both.”
