John Matze, the director of the social medium Parler, does not know if the platform will come back online and if so, when.

He says this in conversation with the

Several companies cut ties with Parler after the violent storming of the Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump incited on the social medium.

Parler has been completely black since Monday after Amazon refused to provide the hosting any longer.

The social medium wants to challenge that decision in court.

Matze expresses uncertainty about when Parler is accessible again.

"It could never be," he said.

"We do not know yet."

"I am an optimist," he added after publishing his words.

"It could take days, it could take weeks, but Parler will return and when it does, we'll be stronger."

Matze also said he is in talks with multiple hosting companies to take over from Amazon.

He declined to name names in order to protect these parties from intimidation.

Parler profiles itself as a safe haven for freedom of expression.

The site attracted many Trump supporters, who saw it as an alternative to Twitter, among others.

Google and Apple already removed the social medium's app from their app stores this past weekend, as the platform does not apply moderation to posted posts.
