At the time of Twitter and Facebook, conspiracy theories are very commonplace on our societal networking feeds.
QAnon is a team that started in 2017 about the imageboard 4chan and ever since that time, the team has spread a few of the most notable and interrogate concepts to achieve our newsfeeds.
Twitter declared this week they had eliminated 7,000 accounts that are connected to the conspiracy station for breaking up their guidelines: from engaging spam to stage manipulation.
The QAnon conspiracy team has witnessed a surge in popularity over the past six weeks in Europe, Marc-André Argentino, a Ph.D. candidate and associate fellow in the International Network on Extremism and Technology told The Cube.
“Some of those hotspots are Germany, Italy, France at the moment but they’re found across Europe in roughly sixteen to seventeen distinct states,” he explained.
The largest increase in QAnon Facebook bands lately has been in Europe, using their articles translated into Spanish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Russian, Russian, and some Native languages, amongst others.
The team has seen an uptake in its action on the continent because of the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, based on Argentino.
