A Twitter knockoff site, Parler, was introduced as a place for unfettered “free speech” and attracted a largely right-wing membership.
Amazon’s web service (AWS), which Parler used, shut down the Parler website on Sunday, January 11, 2021, announcing that Parler had violated Amazon’s terms of service.
Before Parler was shut down, a young 26-year old female computer hacker, with assistance from others, managed to download some 99% of Parler’s content. The contents include personal information about those who posted it.

Isle of Man, UK – A blast of sunshine has hit a secretive banking network used by global ultra-wealthy figures following a massive hack by “Phineas Fisher“, a notorious self-described “hacktivist”, of Cayman National Bank and Trust, which serves nearly 1,500 accounts in Isle of Man. Transparency collective Distributed Denial of Secrets has began publishing copies of the bank’s servers, a cache of documents as well as communications among bankers and others. Journalists around the world have been investigating the data for months and have begun publishing the first of their stories.
