'Tech titans are feigning offense to destroy Parler': Glenn Greenwald blasts app's ban claiming 'far more violence has been planned on Facebook' while accusing YouTube of 'promoting right-wing extremism'

Glenn Greenwald has claimed 'far more violence' has been planned on Facebook than on Parler after Google and Apple removed the latter from their app stores and Amazon booted it off its web hosting service.

The journalist tweeted Sunday to accuse the tech giants of 'feigning offense to destroy' the app after Donald Trump was on Friday kicked off of most mainstream social media platforms.

Greenwald, part of a team that won a Pulitzer for reports about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, tweeted: 'For years, I heard it's invalid to object to political censorship by FB & Twitter because, if you don't like it, you can just create a competing social media platform.

'Parler tried. And in 24 hours, Google, Apple & Amazon united to destroy it. That's what monopoly power means.'
