Twitter: crackdown on QAnon conspiracy theorists

Twitter: crackdown on QAnon conspiracy theorists
Conspiracy theorists who support the QAnon theory are not welcome on Twitter. The platform today announces a zero tolerance policy towards those who share links and content in this regard by breaking the rules and trying to circumvent the limitations imposed. A measure that will affect a total of about 150,000 accounts (7,000 have already been excluded).

QAnon off Twitter: permanent ban

Stop the recommendations of the tweets and blocking for the URLs that lead to external resources. The hard punch of social media is announced at a delicate moment, a few days after the attack that has compromised numerous high-profile accounts and a few months after the 2020 Presidential elections that will decide in what direction American society will go in the coming years, with the campaign election in full swing.

We have been clear about the severe actions that we will take against behavior that can lead to offline damage. In line with this approach, this week we are taking action on the activity of the so-called QAnon across the platform.

We will permanently suspend profiles that publish about these topics in violation of our multi-account policy, coordinating abuse of individual victims or attempting to circumvent a previous suspension, practices that we have observed in particular in recent weeks.

We will permanently suspend accounts Tweeting about these topics that we know are engaged in violations of our multi-account policy , coordinating abuse around individual victims, or are attempting to evade a previous suspension - something we've seen more of in recent weeks.

The theory QAnon, usually associated with the movements of the extreme right, the united states , believes that since his election, Donald Trump is fighting a battle away from the spotlight, against the so-called Deep State , an occult organization with followers devoted to the cabala, paedophilia, human trafficking and other atrocities.
