Twitter bans conspiracy theory group QAnon

Following a surge of harassment and misinformation complaints, Twitter announced multiple measures to curb QAnon content. It has taken down over 7000 such accounts for spam and platform manipulation. The ban includes limiting the circulation of QAnon content on trending topics and search, as well as any followup URLs.

Qanon was just a bunch of 4chan shitposts boomers and older gen-X's were taking seriously.

Way to call attention to them. Denying them a platform only amplifies their message. Just like what happened to Alex Jones. His platform is still successful, even without access to Twitter FB and YT. Active censorship only feed their confirmation bias.

The Q cult may be misguided, and mostly nonsensical with a lot of their beliefs, falling for the PsyOp turned LARP, but they are probably one of the least harmful groups on social media. However, they are adamantly opposed to the very real Cryptocracy and so present a problem. Nothing that a Nazicrat platform cannot handle though. The liberals running the Twitterreich merely flex their Hitlerian muscle and voila, no more QAnon!

Why? The mainstream media kept up the Russian collusion conspiracy theory for over 3 years.

Well out of all the conspiracies I’d say Qanon a peaceful one and who knows may be true. If people aren’t harming anyone I don’t care what they believe. I wonder when twitter will ban people who actually harm people/tweet threats!

QANON is just government disinformation. The ban just makes them look real.

Just drop all social media, I did years ago. It really has no benefits and is a huge waste of time.
