“LONDON — Twitter says it has suspended more than 70,000 accounts associated with the far right QAnon conspiracy theory following last week’s U.S. Capitol riot.

The social media company said Tuesday that given the events last week in Washington, D.C., where a mob of pro-Trump loyalists tried to violently storm the Capitol building, it was taking action against online behavior “that has the potential to lead to offline harm.”

Twitter said it’s also stepping up enforcement measures and starting Tuesday it will limit the spread of posts that violate its civic integrity policy by preventing anyone from replying to, liking or retweeting them. The policy prohibits attempts to manipulate elections and spread misleading info about their results, with repeated violations resulting in permanent suspension.”

…”civic integrity policy”…

I ran across this term a little while back, and was wondering what on earth this clearly sanitized name even meant.

They often commit their worst behaviors, behind these “positive” sounding names.

The QAnon people have a right to parade their insanity online, just as much as anybody else…and twitter is once again grossly abusing it’s power.

There is no legitimate reason for twitter to be indiscriminately purging lunatics from it’s platform.

They should be guilty of far more than just babbling on about absurd conspiracy theories, before anyone even thinks about taking action against them.

Rioters BEG For Forgiveness After Storming Capitol…

“The CEO of an Illinois marketing firm who was charged during the storming of the U.S. Capitol this Wednesday is now saying that participating in the mob violence was the worst decision of his life.

Bradley Rukstales, the CEO and president of Cogensia, told WBEZ that he was arrested for unlawful entry, which was the first time he’s ever been arrested in his life. Rukstales now says his decision to breach the Capitol was the result of “extremely poor judgment.”

“My decision to enter the Capitol was wrong, and I am deeply regretful to have done so,” Rukstales said in a statement. “Without qualification and as a peaceful and law-abiding citizen, I condemn the violence and destruction that took place in Washington.”

“Amazon notified Parler that it would be cutting off the social network favored by conservatives and extremists from its cloud hosting service Amazon Web Services, according to an email obtained by BuzzFeed News. The suspension, which will go into effect on Sunday just before midnight, means that Parler will be unable to operate and will go offline unless it can find another hosting service.

I, for one, condemn the knee capping of Parler.

I have an established account there, and made my first connection with another MAP [twitter refugee] on Parler, just hours before the plug got pulled.

There were still some of us decent people using that platform.

I have no knowledge, whatsoever, of what any MAGA/QAnon right wing loonies were up to…but there are good people using Parler, who don’t deserve losing another platform in this way.
