The social media site popular with Trump supporters went dark when its cloud support was cut.

Parler is back online following several weeks of darkness after the social media site popular with supporters of former president Donald Trump was knocked offline.

Parler effectively fell off the Internet in January when Amazon refused to provide technical cloud computing support to the site after the tech giant determined Parler was not doing enough to moderate and remove incitements to violence. (Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post).

The site was not fully functional on Monday, and some users reported technical glitches as they tried to log in and refresh feeds. Private messaging was disabled, but the basic outline of the site was live.
