What does the EU Digital Market Act regulate? Does it has anything to do with Parler de-platforming?

Background

The European Commission published the proposal of Digital Markets Act (DMA) at the end of 2020. The DMA establishes a set of criteria for qualifying the so-called “gatekeeper” platforms with a set of obligations for the gatekeepers to comply in their daily operations. According to the EU commission, one of the main goals of DMA is to establish a level playing field to foster innovation, growth, and competitiveness, both in the European Single Market and globally. What exactly does DMA regulate? Is it the best solution for states to regulate the big tech?
