Parler, a social media app, returned to Apple Inc’s App Store, after the iPhone maker dropped it following the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
“The entire Parler team has worked hard to address Apple’s concerns without compromising our core mission,” said Meckler in an emailed statement. “Anything allowed on the Parler network but not in the iOS app will remain accessible through our web-based and Andriod versions. This is a win-win for Parler, its users, and free speech.”
The Washington Post said Parler’s Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff likened the iOS version of the app to a “Parler Lite or Parler PG.” Parler is still pushing Apple to allow users to see hate speech behind a warning label, the newspaper reported.
Parler co-founder and CEO John Matze was fired by the board earlier this year. In an emailed statement Parler said new CEO Farmer had been an active financial supporter and candidate for UK’s Brexit Party and “remains actively involved in business and politics on both sides of the Atlantic.”
