Apple CEO Tim Cook Hopes for Parler Return

Tim Cook, the Apple CEO, hopes that the right-wing social media network Parler will return to the company’s app store. It was forced offline following the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. During the ‘Sway’ podcast on Monday, he said, “the company will come back after it puts in the moderation that is required to be on the store.”

Tim Cook said, “I think having more social networks out there is better than having less.” Earlier this year, Apple and Google App Stores had suspended the app. It was also kicked off from Amazon’s web-hosting service for its ties to the siege on the U.S. Capitol in January.

Parler’s smartphone app was first yanked from the Google app store for allowing the postings that look to incite ongoing violence in the United States. Apple followed suit one day after giving the Parler a day that addressed the complaints, which stated that it was being used to facilitate and plan yet further illegal and dangerous activities.

In a statement to FOX Business, an Apple spokesperson said, “We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity. Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues.”According to recent reports, Tim Cook claims that the app would be allowed again as long as it would comply with Apple’s Terms of Service.
