Twitter wrote on its blog that in view of violent incidents in Washington DC, we have started suspending thousands of accounts permanently. These accounts were sharing QAnon content. All the accounts were sharing malicious and socially distributed content.
Twitter wrote ”We cannot allow such rumors and content to spread. Content related to QAnon (Pro-Trump Qanon Conspiracy) was being shared on the Qanon account. All of them were justifying the attack on Capitol Hill through content. According to the Qanon Group, all the evil forces have united to defeat Trump and Trump has been sent by God to reform the world”.
A new report has revealed that Trump supporters brought 11 indigenous bombs and some other weapons into a truck in addition to guns for violence in Capitol Hill. However, the National Guard did not allow people to enter the Capitol Building carrying bombs.
First Trump’s account changed
Trump had two tweets on Friday (January 8). In one, he called his supporters of violence revolutionary, while in the other, he said that he would not go to the presidential inauguration (Biden’s swearing-in) on 20 January. A few minutes after these two tweets, the tweets of Trump’s account stopped appearing and the message of the account began to show as suspended. Trump’s Twitter account had more than 88 million followers.
Twitter said in its blog post that we had said that we will take tough measures against Trump if he will ignore the policy of Twitter and make inflammatory tweets. Even then, he made provocative tweets again on Friday. We have said earlier that the account of any of the biggest leaders is not above our rules. However, this led to a 6.4% drop in Twitter shares.
Story of 7 January
In the US, on January 7, supporters of incumbent President Donald Trump sought to enter Parliament and deny the defeat of their favorite president. Security had to struggle to stop all this. Several armed Trump supporters entered the US Capitol when Parliament was about to confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Many people lost their life in retaliation.
