Build Your Own Platforms

That’s the refrain coming from the right after the removal of Trump and his supporters from everything– Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Spotify (in case they’re listening to music that is getting them angry?), payment processors and banks.

Parler is an interesting case, as their whole site was banned from Amazon and they’re having trouble even finding a hosting provider for them:

Social media site Parler may never come back online after Amazon dropped the conservative-friendly platform from its servers, its CEO said, as the company insists in court that its termination was motivated by “political animus.”

Parler CEO John Matze told Reuters on Wednesday that the website’s future is in limbo after a cascade of online vendors rushed to distance themselves from the platform in the wake of an eruption of violence at the US Capitol last week, saying he doesn’t know if it will ever bounce back.

“It could be never. We don’t know yet,” he said. “It’s hard to keep track of how many people are telling us that we can no longer do business with them.”

If it gets to the domain registrar level or further, I’m not sure that you can still have the platform, though. You may have to change to a different country.

Or maybe leave the online world and go physical.
