Twitter has removed a few accounts associated with Antifa. The accounts had 71k followers.
Antifa is a far-left movement behind most of the violent riots witnessed after George Floyd’s death.
On inauguration day, adherents to the movement rioted in several cities around the country. In Seattle, they burned an American flag after ransacking the city and destroying the historic Starbucks.
In Portland, Oregon, they marched through the city carrying a banner that read, “WE DON’T WANT BIDEN — WE WANT REVENGE!”
At least four accounts associated with Antifa have been removed from Twitter. Archives show that the accounts had more than 71k followers, and they date as far back as 2012. Now, the pages read “Account suspended,” the reason given being a violation of Twitter’s rules.
“The Base took the same approach to Twitter as they do in the struggle for liberation. As anarchists, they take a stand & never waver. It’s inspiring. And we encourage everyone to check their site now & periodically http://thebasebk.org Solidarity forever!”
Over the past few weeks, Twitter has been removing accounts associated with extremist groups. But thus far, conservative groups have taken the greatest hit and Twitter suspended over 70,000 accounts associated with the QAnon movement.
