Twitter on Friday permanently suspended accounts for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell and former 8kun administrator Ron Watkins as part of a crackdown on content linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

A spokesperson for the platform told The Hill that each of the individuals was banned in line with Twitter’s policy against harmful coordinated activity.

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm, and given the renewed potential for violence surrounding this type of behavior in the coming days, we will permanently suspend accounts that are solely dedicated to sharing QAnon content,” the spokesperson added.

Flynn, President Trump's first national security adviser, has been one of the most visible QAnon supporters with close ties to the administration, posting a video of himself reciting one of its “oaths” last summer.

Powell, who led Trump’s unsuccessful attempts to overthrow the results of November’s election, was sued for $1.3 billion earlier Friday for spreading misinformation about Dominion Voting Systems.

Watkins was also a key figure spreading falsehoods about the voting company. His former platform hosts posts by "Q," the anonymous figure who posts the cryptic messages that serve as the foundation of the theory.

I see no future for social media. Mark this statement
because people are no longer free to express themselves there they leave and find other forums where their voices will be heard.

we are all happy watching this gang of satanists gradually killing free speech and the world is cheering them on - it will soon reach all of us and then it will be too late to do anything about it!

Other platforms that will allow free speech can test the waters.

I know it’s a whole lot of work to build and grow any platform but I hope we can have real broader options that can compete shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Facebook.

So much for freedom of speech, yet they never censored AOC or Kamala when they were inciting violence on these platforms last year.

But twitter urged on people who burnt properties in Nigeria in the name of EndSARS.

Jack actually asked people to donate funds into their accounts.

"I don't care if your country burns as long as mine does not"

See how fast those who invaded Capitol were labeled insurrectionists but when people invaded high security places in Nigeria like Airports and attempted to invade Aso Villa, they were "peaceful" EndSARS protesters

Hmmmmmmm this is deep!
That is the high level of HYPOCRISY going on in the world.

Like Twitter , Like CNN .........


If Trump tries to use a non-government account (say, if he created a new account), it would be permanently suspended “at first detection” according to Twitter.
No be small matter o

Twitter didn't think this through. A temporary suspension anytime they breach the rules would have been better.
With this ban, the affected will migrate to a shadowy social media site and take their cult members with them.
One thing you don't do when fighting cultists is push them to isolate their members where the public can't see them.
Zuckerberg is much smarter in his response.

They have crossed a line and they don’t realize it yet. A new platform called Parler is fast gaining popularity due to Twitters tyrannical censorship and it has been attracting many conservatives, libertarian and even free speech liberals because they promise to let people speak their mind without any regulation. Nothing except direct threats of violence or criminal activity is banned there.

As we speak Parler has been growing at a rate of over 500k new subscribers a week. With the suspension of Trump and other top conservatives, I expect that rate to at least triple in the coming weeks as their supporters move there.

Twitter and FB believe what they are doing will please the incoming democrat government into leaving them alone and not regulating them. Big mistake! The democrats I know will instead use this as justification to crack down harder on them and even break them up. Just watch. Twitter just shot them selves in the foot. They are likely to go the way of MySpace soon. Don’t forget that twitter was already dying a natural death before Trump came on the political scene and made it popular again.
