Flynn And Powell Twitter Accounts Are Among 70 000 Blocked After Capitol Riots
70,000 accounts have been relegated to the far-right conspiracy theory QAnon and blocked. Among ordinary users, the accounts of Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell, which, after the election results, began to actively submit numerous evidence of fraud in the presidential election, were also damped.
“These accounts were engaged in sharing harmful QAnon-associated content at scale and were primarily dedicated to the propagation of this conspiracy theory across the service,” the company said in a blog post.
Such a massive blocking of the most active users led to a desertion of Americans to other social networks and instant messengers. Parler became the first alternative to Facebook and Twitter, but a few hours later, Amazon announced the termination of cooperation with the site.
Now the conservative society has moved to Gab.com, where no one is harassing anyone because of a different point of view. Meanwhile, Twitter shares are rapidly losing value. The richest man on the planet, Elon Musk hit Facebook and urged his followers to use Signal.
