Twitter ating is fighting to spread posts and accounts related to the conspiracy movement known as Qiunan
On Tuesday evening, the social media company shared a message on its Twitter Safety account detailing its plans, saying posts about Qiun could pose a threat outside of the Twitter platform.
“We have made it clear that we will take strong enforcement action against behaviors that are likely to cause harm offline. In line with this approach, this week we are taking further steps in the so-called ‘Qiunon’ activity across the service, ”the account wrote.
“We will permanently suspend accounts by tweeting about issues that we know are involved in policy violations for many of our accounts, trying to coordinate abuses around individual victims or avoid previous suspensions – something we’ve seen in recent weeks,” it continued.
Twitter’s Multiple Account Rules prohibit users from posting the same message on multiple accounts or duplicates in one account. According to NBC News, about one and a half thousand Twitter accounts will be suspended due to the new policy, and, related to, 000,000 quintals.
Keunon-related content will no longer be featured on Twitter’s trending topics or recommendations.
“Also, we will: no longer serve content and accounts related to Quinn in trends and recommendations. Work to make sure we are not highlighting this activity in search and conversation. Stop sharing URLs associated with Quinn on Twitter, “the account wrote.
Quinn theories are often shared on anonymous social media message boards and claim that there is a conspiracy against President Trump and his supporters. They targeted Wesfire furniture company Chrissy Tigen and, most notably, spread the conspiracy theory on pizza, saying Democrat elites ran a child sex-trafficking ring from a pizza shop.
“These measures will be widely launched this week,” the Twitter protection account read. “We will continue to review this activity across our services and, if necessary, update our rules and procedures. When we work at the stage to protect public discourse in the face of evolving threats, we will lead with transparency and present more context in our efforts. ”
