Summary (IA Generated)

Twitter has permanently suspended over 70,000 accounts since Friday in an attempt to clamp down on QAnon-fueled conspiracies on its service, the company has announced.

The company banned 7,000 QAnon-related accounts last July Twitter’s suspension of QAnon accounts coincided with some prominent GOP members complaining about lost followers — namely, those supporting false claims of a stolen election.

Republican representative Matt Gaetz complained of having lost tens of thousands of followers, a claim which is supported by data from Social Blade.

All had been regularly gaining followers prior to the QAnon purge that Twitter says began on Friday.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican representative from Georgia, has lost tens of thousands of followers since Twitter started banning QAnon accounts on Friday.

Last July, the company announced it had banned 7,000 accounts in relation to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Although its latest crackdown has banned tens of thousands of profiles, Twitter says that single individuals were operating “numerous” accounts.
