am just imagining this frenzied attempt to copy all the data out of the s3 buckets and dump the databases

uspol, parler 

"hi this is my first post does anyone know how to deploy a cloudformation template on a dell"

uspol, parler 

"uh, how many 1tb external drives do we need to hold *checks notes* 1.21 petabytes of s3 data? we'll send someone to the micro center"

hey maybe the parler admin email they use to register at some other hosting provider is hosted on aws and they forgot about it...

uspol, parler 

"is there a one click migration tool for moving from aws to oracle cloud...? please dm"

uspol, parler 

"if aws can kick parler off they can kick you off too"

yes, you have successfully identified one of the risks of relying on a third party for literally anything, i don't think this is the hot take you think it is...

if a vendor is _critical_ to your operations, you should probably work pretty hard to maintain that relationship

and sometimes, that means not assisting in attempts to overthrow the government...

@twitter I think some of it is all the Nazi bots and virulent racist assholes finally getting banned by twitter...

Or something similar. Screaming on national television they can't communicate with their base anymore. Because heaven knows the sociopath with a private jet can't afford a TV and cable...
