After rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, a hacker on Twitter archived the Trump supporters’ posts on Parler to piece together the role the platform played in the insurgency. The hacker, who goes by @donk_enby on Twitter, claims her goal was to store every post relating to the assault before Parler was taken down.

According to the Atlantic Council, Parler was used by conservatives and right wing extremists to plan the riot on January 6th. The app has since  been suspended by Amazon’s Web hosting services, while both Google and Apple have removed it from its stores.
