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
Many of the individuals impacted by this updated enforcement
action held multiple accounts, driving up the total number of
accounts impacted. 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. 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.
Better late than never, again, but they knew these kooks were spreading poison months ago. It’s shocking how many people I know with immediate family members who’ve been consumed by this QAnon conspiracy cult.
