SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter has suspended “more than 70,000 accounts” linked to the QAon conspiracy theory following a mob attack on the US capital by supporters of President Donald Trump.
The social network launched its crackdown on Friday, shortly after which it permanently suspended Trump’s language account, which could spark violence.
Twitter said in a blog post, “Since Friday, our efforts have resulted in the suspension of more than 70,000 accounts, with one person reporting multiple instances of multiple accounts being operated.”
“These accounts were heavily involved in distributing harmful QAon-related content and were primarily dedicated to promoting this conspiracy theory of the service.” Right-wing Kevin conspiracy theorists claim that Trump is waging a covert war against the global liberal sect of pedophile worshipers.
Most major social media platforms have taken unusual steps since Trump supporters stormed the capital on Wednesday to block Congress from endorsing Biden’s presidential victory, shocking the United States and tarnishing international image. Stained.
Both Facebook and Twitter have suspended Trump’s accounts indefinitely, refusing to accept the November 3 election results and spreading baseless allegations that the vote was rigged.
Both platforms have specifically referred to the threat of future violence, especially before Biden’s inauguration on January 20.
Twitter said it also had the fact that plans for more war demonstrations were pushing the service forward, including a planned second attack on US capital and state capital buildings on January 17.
The social network was Trump’s preferred megaphone, and had 88 million users when his account was suspended.
