Data compiled by the ADL Center on Extremism (COE) shows that QAnon-related content has surged on Twitter since Elon Musk’s takeover of the platform last fall.

QAnon is a decentralized, far-right political movement rooted in a baseless conspiracy theory that the world is controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles known as the “Deep State,” which can only be stopped by former President Trump, and that these individuals will be brought to justice during a violent day of reckoning known as “the Storm.” QAnon-linked beliefs have inspired violent acts and have eroded trust in democratic institutions and the electoral process.

Between May 2022 and May 2023, tweets including QAnon-related hashtags increased by 91 percent, compared to the year prior. More than 103,000 of those mentions were posted between November 2022 and May 2023—meaning that more than 74 percent of tweets containing QAnon-related hashtags were posted in the last six months alone, shortly after Musk’s takeover of Twitter in late October 2022. Examples of the hashtags in question include #WWG1WGA, #NothingCanStopWhatIsComing, #TheStormIsUponUs and #QArmy.
