Parler is financially supported by hedge-fund investor Robert Mercer’s daughter Rebekah, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“John and I started Parler to provide a neutral platform for free speech, as our founders intended, and also to create a social media environment that would protect data privacy,” she wrote in a post on the site last year.
“The ever increasing tyranny and hubris of our tech overlords demands that someone lead the fight against data mining, and for the protection of free speech online,'” she added.
According to Linkedin, Matze is now Parler’s CEO while Thomson is the chief technical officer.

The social media platform was recently dropped by virtually all of its business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreement with Parler for failing to deal with the rise in violent content.
“Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze said today on Fox News.
Matze conceded that the bans could put the company out of business while raising free speech issues, calling it “an assault on everybody.”
