    “AWS’s decision to effectively terminate Parler’s account is apparently motivated by political animus,” Parler said in the filing. “It is also apparently designed to reduce competition in the microblogging services market to the benefit of Twitter.”

    “[Amazon] stated the reason for the suspension was that AWS was not confident Parler could properly police its platform regarding content that encourages or incites violence against others,” Parler said. “However, Friday night one of the top trending tweets on Twitter was ‘Hang Mike Pence.’ But AWS has no plans nor has it made any threats to suspend Twitter’s account.”
