7,000 QAnon Twitter accounts suspended including Donald Trump Junior’s
The ban comes as the site says they are spreading misinformation with the President’s son banned from Twitter for saying hydroxychloroquine works.
The President’s son, also called Donald, had his account limited for spreading ‘misinformation’ despite following what doctors and experts were saying.
His ban came after he retweeted a video of a Houston doctor who stated the coronavirus has a “cure called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.”
His father, President Trump, had also retweeted Monday night two posts of Dr. Stella Immanuel’s speech making claims that the anti-malaria drug has successfully cured people of the virus.
She also said that masks ‘were not needed’ and were ‘three months too late anyway.’
Donald Trump Jr. called Immanuel’s viral Friday speech a ‘must watch’ as he posted a link on his Twitter page, causing his account access to be limited by Twitter.
However, the left-wing media has called her claims ‘dubious’ and her video was removed by all social media platforms.
However, her video hit 14 million views on Breitbart News on Monday, especially after Donald Trump Junior and Senior retweeted it.
Trump Jr’s spokesperson, Andrew Surabian, took to Twitter Tuesday morning, posting a screenshot of Trump Jr.’s temporary restriction, saying: “BREAKING: @Twitter & @jack have suspended @DonaldJTrumpJr for posting a viral video of medical doctors talking about Hydroxychloroquine. Big Tech is the biggest threat to free expression in America today & they’re continuing to engage in open election interference – full stop.”
The Twitter notice to the President’s eldest son reads ‘We’ve temporarily limited some of your account features”.
“We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: 1. Violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19”, it continued.
The Twitter shakedown comes as 7,000 QAnon sites were suspended indefinitely from the site as they are accused of spreading ‘misinformation’.
A spokesman for Twitter said, “The Tweet is in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. The account will be locked until the account owner removes the Tweet.”
QAnon say the big sites – including Facebook – are committed to stopping the spread of real information with numerous accounts across all sites being blocked or suspended.
