🔴Monday April 26th 2021 🔵2021年4月26日星期一 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 😱😨😰Parleying on Apple: the controversial app returns Parler:辣個極具爭議性的 App 捲土重來 Exile has been hard for Parler, which this week returns to the Apple app store. The Twitter clone beloved by the far right was kicked off Apple’s and Google’s app stores, as well as Amazon’s servers, following the Capitol riots on January 6th. It has since ousted and been sued by its founder and chief executive, John Matze, filed two lawsuits against Amazon and spent more than a month offline. The social-media app, which sells itself as an alternative to the “censorship” of platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, has made compromises to become available on iPhones again. Details remain unclear. Mark Meckler, Parler’s interim boss, gave a mealy-mouthed interview to Fox Business in which he claimed that Parler was “not doing content moderation at all”, before saying that the version on the Apple app store will have “a particular kind of content censorship”. Ironically, Mr Matze claims he was fired for trying to introduce precisely this sort of moderation. 對本週將在蘋果 App Store 恢復上架的 Parler 來說,要徹底剷除掉它是件難事。這個深受極右派人士喜愛的類推特 App 在今年一月六日的 (美國) 國會山莊遭襲擊事件後,被強制從蘋果的 App Store、Google 的 Play Store 以及亞馬遜 (Amazon) 的伺服器上下架。Parler 自此遭封殺,而其創辦人暨執行長 John Matze 則對亞馬遜提起兩個訴訟案,並將 Parler 下線一個多月。Parler 這個以提供替代掉推特、臉書這種「言論審查」平台為賣點的社交 App 做出了些許讓步,進而得以再次於 iPhone 上提供服務,但細節仍不明。代理執行長 Mark Meckler 在指出於 App Store 重新上架的 Parler 將有特定部分的內容審查後,隨即又在福斯財經網 (Fox Business) 的受訪中隱晦地表示:Parler 並不會進行任何言論審查。諷刺的是,John Matze 聲稱他正因試圖導入這種適度的審查而被 (Parler) 解僱。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Exile (v./n.): 流亡、放逐 (動/名) ✅Beloved by…(adj.): 深受…的喜愛 (形) ✅Server (n.): 伺服器 (名) ✅Lawsuit (n.): 訴訟案、官司 (名) ✅Alternative (n./adj.): 另一個選項 (名)、另一個的 (形) ✅Censorship (n.): 審查制度 (名) ✅Compromise (v./n.): 折衷、和解、妥協 (動/名) ✅Content moderation (n.): 內容審核 (名) ✅Ironically (adv.): 諷刺地 (副) ✅Precisely (adv.): 恰恰地、確切地 (副) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
