Amazon, Apple and Google accuse him of failing to moderate messages of incitement to violence after the assault on Capitol Hill in Washington last Wednesday.
The popular social network for Donald Trump supporters, Parler, was down on Monday.
Amazon had indeed announced this weekend that it would suspend the account of the social network from Monday, explaining in a letter addressed to the conservative site to have 'recently observed a persistent increase in violent content'.
The other two tech giants Apple and Google had previously withdrawn from their application download platforms the social network where, according to them, 'threats of violence' and 'illegal activities' proliferated.
A social network popular with ultra-conservatives
Launched in 2018, Parler works much like Twitter, with profiles to follow and 'parlys' instead of tweets.
Freedom of expression is its leitmotif and, in fact, this network is very popular with American but also French conservatives, who often go into exile there after regretting the moderation of their tweets.
More traditional Republican voices were added to those of the far right thereafter.
The events of last Wednesday, when supporters of Donald Trump broke into the Capitol in Washington, prompted apps and tech giants to crack down on networks that relay extremist messages.
After Twitter's decision to permanently delete Donald Trump's account, Parler unsurprisingly experienced an unprecedented boom.
It was still Saturday the most downloaded application in the United States on the Apple platform.

In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Parler co-founder John Matze admitted that getting the site up and running may take time.
'All our partners, those who manage the texts, emails, our lawyers, let us down the same day,' he lamented.
'We will do everything we can to get back online as quickly as possible but all the suppliers we contact tell us that they do not want to work with us if Apple or Google does not approve,' he said. he explains.
And it is difficult to find '300 to 500 computer servers in 24 hours'.
Purchase. John Matze accused the web giants on Saturday of waging a 'war against freedom of expression'.
'They will NOT win! We are the world's last hope for free speech and free information,' he said.
Another ultra-conservative platform, Gab, has meanwhile set up its own servers so as not to depend on outside companies after being banned by Apple and Google.
I have five email accounts that use the same incoming and outgoing mail servers; they only differ by the username and password for authentication. When installing the 10.11 beta 1, the installer deleted all of these outgoing mail servers except one, but stripped out the username and password. I can edit that one to add the information for one email account so it will work. And I cannot add them back as the '+' and '-' in the edit server windows are dimmed. Anyone else have this issue? Any fixes found?
