Apple to Reinstate Parler, the App at Center of Free-Speech Debate
By Matt Grossman
Apple Inc. plans to make the social-media app Parler available
through its App Store again, the computer and smartphone company
said in a letter to lawmakers on Monday.
Apple has excluded Parler user downloads since January, citing
objectionable content. In a letter to Senator Mike Lee of Utah and
Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado, Apple said Monday that a revised
version of the Parler app with improved content moderation would be
approved for release to Apple users.
The letter from Apple was posted on Twitter by Mr. Buck, and it
was confirmed by Mr. Lee's office. Apple didn't immediately respond
to an inquiry.
