70 TB of information collected in Parler data scrape
N.B. I'm not applauding or condoning what has transpired.
On Sunday, before Amazon web hosting pulled the plug on Parler, some hackers downloaded 70 Terabytes of information, including deleted posts, private messages, images with EXIF data intact, and the drivers licenses of Parler's "Verified Citizens."
The mechanics of how it was accomplished has been posted to Reddit.
By my calculations, this would mean that the download cost Parler at least $7700
