Amazon suspends Parler social networking service

US tech giant Amazon has suspended web-hosting service to Parler, a social networking service popular with right-leaning users, including supporters of President Donald Trump.
This came after Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol last week.

Amazon on Monday suspended US-based Parler from its Amazon Web Services for violating AWS's terms of services. It said Parler failed to deal with an increasing number of posts inciting violence.

Parler says it ensures free speech and does not check the contents of posts.

It filed a lawsuit with a federal court in Seattle, where Amazon is headquartered, seeking an injunction.

Google and Apple have also suspended Parler from their app stores.
