Gizmodo posted some examples of posts submitted by Amazon for the lawsuit here (not posting them verbatim as it would likely violate the TOS on Blues):https://gizmodo.com/amazon-court-filing-includes-chilling-death-threats-pub-1846048394
There are specific death threats in there. So I have a hard time believing anyone would think that they would be allowed on Twitter or any other service with a normal TOS.
As for the claim I've heard a lot of people make lately, that 'never before in history has a small group of companies controlled public discourse'. Let me remind them that before the Internet, for over 200 years, the only forums for public discourse was the letter to the editor page of newspapers. They too had rules for content, and it was completely at the discretion of the editorial board. Their server (or newspaper) their rules.
Don't feel bad for Parler. They already have a new host, it's just going to take time for them to recode the back end. Likely they never wrote it themselves and just outsourced the work, and since it was probably customized for the AWS API, might take a while.
Considering Gab went through exactly the same thing in 2018, it was pretty stupid that Parler didn't have a plan B on standby for just this occasion. The writing was on the wall.
