The social media platform Parler has gone dark. After last week's insurrection, Amazon Web Services suspended Parler, which is popular with extremist Trump supporters and conservatives. Apple and Google removed the app from their app stores.

This comes after Twitter permanently banned Trump. Facebook banned him at least through the end of his term.
