Breaking News ! President Donald Trump reportedly considered creating an account on social media platform Parler under the pseudonym “Person X”.Parler, an alternative social media platform to Twitter that is popular with conservatives and Trump supporters, had its access shut down by Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Monday in the wake of the Capitol riots.A mob of pro-Trump supporters breached the US Capitol on Wednesday 6 January, after attending a rally led by Mr Trump, who urged supporters to “walk down to the Capitol” and told them: “You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.”The House was evacuated as numerous politicians and staff members were forced to barricade themselves in offices to hide from the rioters, some of whom were carrying guns and other weapons. Five people died and numerous others were injured in the riots.Watch moreSeveral social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, banned Mr Trump from their services in the wake of the riots, before Google, Apple and then AWS shut down access to Parler a few days later when it failed to clamp down on violent content.The platform is popular with Trump supporters because of its reputation for being light on moderation, and violence was called by numerous users after the riots, according to Business Insider.After he was banned from several other platforms last week, concerns were raised that Mr Trump would join Parler to continue communicating with his base.In a statement after ending its relationship with Parler, AWS said that it shut down the platform on its service as it felt its content posed “a very real risk to public safety”.Following the termination of contract by AWS, Parler filed an antitrust lawsuit against the company, before then adding an additional filing on Wednesday.
.Mr Matze said that an AWS representative assigned to Parler had been aware that Mr Trump had been mulling over whether to set up an account under the pseudonym “Person X” on the platform since at least October 2020.He claimed that the AWS representative was in contact with him about the possibility of Mr Trump joining Parler, adding that the person should have understood that the president joining would have brought more of his supporters to the platform.The CEO claimed that he believes AWS terminated service to Parler “in part on a desire to deny President Trump a platform on any large social-media service.”Parler is asking a judge to order AWS to restore service to its platform. The Independent has contacted Amazon for comment.Numerous social media platforms have permanently banned Mr Trump from their platforms in the last week, following the riots and impeachment proceedings.Following the House impeaching Mr Trump for the second time on Wednesday, for inciting the Capitol riots last week, Snapchat also permanently banned the US president from their service after just initially barring him from posting.In a statement to Politico about the decision, Snapchat said that it banned Mr Trump “in the interest of public safety.”Snapchat added that it banned Mr Trump “based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account.”
