FTFA- The app said it was worth $1 billion and about to seek funding when Seattle-based Amazon pulled the plug, costing it tens of millions of users and hundreds of millions of dollars of annual ad revenue.

I don't think the national brands were rushing to advertise on a site used exclusively by Nazis and Q-bakers.

b2theory: hundreds of millions of dollars of annual ad revenue.


As we'll surely see from their tax returns...

I didn't know our relationship with Russia was strong enough for that.

This kind of stuff must tickle him more than feathers.

How the absolute fark did these guys not have a contingency plan for if their service provider became inaccessible? 

also, how the fark did it take them A MONTH to build a server array of their own and stick it in some poor unsuspecting datacenter that wouldn't ask them what it was for? it's not like they really had a lot of traffic or data to house. 

holy shiat the ineptness of their technical people is astonishing.

Smart people tend not to want to work for the sort of people that run Parler. And by "sort of people", I mean neo-Nazi supporters and other far right nut jobs. There is enough demand in the sector that you can just find a job anywhere else.

I'd also expect any job offer would be shiat for the industry.  As in "you'll be paid in experience and the friends you make along the way" type.

Which, to your point, means your friends with Nazis and any experience is moot since no respectable company is going to hire someone that lists Parlor as a prior employer.

Parler is using the age old, "I was thiiisss close to being rich" legal theory.
