Twitter alternative Parler partly online again with Russian help


        <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a><p>&nbsp;The&nbsp; Twitter alternative Parler, which is popular with supporters of US President Donald Trump, is partially accessible again with Russian help.        </p><div>
        <p>On Monday, however, only a message from company boss John Matze could be seen on the network, in which he explains that they are working on restoring the functions of the social platform.  Internet expert Ronald Guilmette told Reuters that the Internet addresses now used by Parler belonged to a company run by two Russians.</p>

 The  company has also supported the Russian government. Neither Matze nor DDos-Guard initially responded to Reuters inquiries. DDos-Guard has an address in Scotland under the company name Cognitive Cloud LP on its website, explained Guilmette. However, this company belongs to two Russians from Rostov-on-Don. One of the two men had recently told the Guardian newspaper that he was not aware of all of the content that was being disseminated through the company.

 The  companies stated that the platform did not offer sufficient regulations to protect against dangerous content. Amazon cited as an example contributions like “Only a dead Democrat is a good Democrat. Kill’em all.” Parler countered that most of the problematic posts had been removed. Insults – such as against the former First Lady Michelle Obama – are hateful, but protected by the constitution.
