Twitter announced Monday it has rejected”more than 70,000 accounts” linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory following the attack on the US Capitol by a mob of president Donald Trump’s fans.
The social network began its purge Friday, shortly after it had permanently banned Trump’s account for language that could incite violence.
Since Friday, more than 70,000 accounts have been banned as a result of our efforts, with many instances of a single individual operating numerous accounts.
These accounts were interested in sharing harmful QAnon-associated content at scale and were primarily dedicated to the distribution of this conspiracy theory across the service.
The far-right QAnon conspiracy theory claims Trump is waging a secret war against a global liberal cult of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.
