Parler CEO John Matze said it could take up to a week for the app to be back at full capacity, but even as early as Monday.

“For us to win this fight we need everyone back on Parler Tuesday. By Monday at noon we will be fully operational again,” Matze said in a message, which appears to have been deleted.

Parler did not immediately return the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.

Conservative commentator Mark Levin, who officially left Twitter last week and called on followers to join Parler, echoed Matze.

“Parlor has announced it’ll be back Monday at noon,” he said on the platform.

Conservatives and supporters flocked to Parler after the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday, and Twitter subsequently permanently banning President Trump from its platform.

Tech giants such as Apple, Google, and Amazon then removed Parler from their platforms, saying it is unable to adequately patrol calls for violence.

Parler was founded in 2018 and has been lauded as a platform that protects free speech. It jumped to the most downloaded app on Apple in November after the presidential election.

Matze said on the platform that Parler is the “closest thing to competition Facebook or Twitter has seen in many years.”

“They will NOT win! We are the worlds last hope for free speech and free information,” he continued. “What they are doing is unprecedented, unfounded and absolutely disgusting. Shameful.”
