Apple Inc has suspended Parler from the App Store, saying the social networking service has not taken adequate measures to prevent the spread of posts inciting violence.
“We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues,” the iPhone maker said in a statement Saturday.
Apple had given the service 24 hours to submit a detailed moderation plan, pointing to participants’ using the service to coordinate Wednesday’s siege of the US Capitol.
Parler Chief Executive John Matze said Apple was banning the service until it gives up free speech and institutes “broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook.”
“They claim it is due to violence on the platform. The community disagrees as we hit number 1 on their store today,” Matze said in a post on Parler.
