Since the violence at the Capitol, new reports of users and groups having their accounts cancelled by various technology companies have been rolling in.
The Christian Post reported, “The decision by PayPal comes after technology giants Apple, Google, and Amazon banned social networking app Parler, alleging it allowed violent comments before pro-Trump protesters and others breached the U.S. Capitol in a bid to prevent the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory by Congress which was affirmed early last Thursday.”
Apple said in a statement, “Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues.”
This also comes after Facebook suspended President Trump’s account and Twitter permanently banned his account.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement, “We believe the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”
“Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete,” the statement read.
GiveSendGo describes itself as “A place to fund hope. A place to work together with the body of Christ around the world to make a difference.”
