Several Antifa Twitter accounts were suspended as a result of riots held by the far-left anarcho-communist group during inauguration day.
The sum of all the accounts would add up to about 70,000 followers. Some of the earliest accounts were started in 2012.
One of the most prominent accounts that were suspended was "The Base."
Another of the group's accounts complained about the suspensions.
“Our comrades w The Base (@TheBasebk), an anarchist social center in Brooklyn, NY of 9 years now took this Twitter thing seriously," Antifa Sacramento wrote. "Reaching a platform of 17k followers they pushed a very specific line where politics were never blurred. Today, Twitter took their account down, and now theres a void.”
Independent journalist Andy Ngô was the first to report the suspensions.
"The Base" is a radical bookstore in Brooklyn, New York, where it would indoctrinate people systematically.
Antifa activists, who have been fiercely opposed to President Donald Trump and conservatives over the past few years and have been praised by some Democrats, vandalized buildings and skirmished with police on Jan. 20 in opposition to the inauguration of President Joe Biden.
Some of them were holding signs reading “We are ungovernable.”
Portland Police confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown, with some in the crowd later burning an American flag in the street.
