Apple will be allowing Parler, a Twitter alternative popular among conservatives, back on to its app store, it said in a letter sent to Congress on Monday.

Apple said that it had originally been suspended from its store for inadequate hate speech policies following the Capitol riots in early January. The social media platform has subsequently made attempts to improve its speech moderation.

The tech company's letter to Congress was in response to one sent by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) asking why it had been removed. Apple told Parler on April 14 that it would be allowed back onto its app store.
