Twitter Suspends 70,000 Accounts Linked to Pro-Trump QAnon Conspiracy

Twitter announced Monday that it has suspended "more than 70,000 accounts" linked to QAnon's conspiracy theory following the attack on the US Capitol by a mob of supporters of President Donald Trump, reports AFP.

“Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon,” Twitter said in a blog post.

“Since Friday, more than 70,000 accounts have been suspended as a result of our efforts, with many instances of a single individual operating numerous accounts.”
