BREAKING: Twitter says it has begun taking sweeping actions to limit the reach of QAnon content and banned many of the conspiracy theory's followers due to ongoing problems with harassment and the dissemination of misinformation. https://t.co/NwT9bGWkfx— NBC News (@NBCNews) July 22, 2020
We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm. In line with this approach, this week we are taking further action on so-called ‘QAnon’ activity across the service.— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) July 22, 2020
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.— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) July 22, 2020
In addition, we will:— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) July 22, 2020
1? No longer serve content and accounts associated with QAnon in Trends and recommendations
2? Work to ensure we’re not highlighting this activity in search and conversations
3? Block URLs associated with QAnon from being shared on Twitter
These actions will be rolled out comprehensively this week. We will continue to review this activity across our service and update our rules and enforcement approach again if necessary.— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) July 22, 2020
As we work at scale to protect the public conversation in the face of evolving threats, we’ll continue to lead with transparency and offer more context on our efforts.— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) July 22, 2020
The president is monitoring the situation and considering doing something.
Note: Antifa is free to use Twitter to organize violent mobs and dox people.
