Apple has removed the microblogging and social networking app, Parler, from its app store as the company cracks down on posts that spread misinformation and incite violence, according to the New York Times. The move comes after last week’s violent protests on Capitol Hill which left five people dead, including a police officer. The New York Times confirmed that Parler was listed as the most popular free app on the Apple (AAPL) app store on Saturday morning but removed the app later in the day for insufficient policing of its content and allowing violence and crime to be encouraged.
