Parler, the conservative-leaning "free-speech" social media network, recently returned back online on Monday, but some users of the site have already reported issues with logging on.

The platform officially relaunched on Monday after having been previously taken offline because of its users' posts promoting violence. Its relaunch announcement proclaimed that its network was now built on "sustainable independent technology" and not being reliant on "Big Tech" for its operations.

But while the Parler website appeared to be functioning at first, various users have complained online that the site is not operable.

One Twitter user named @brinnlee3 wrote, "Still can't get on Parler."
