Twitter Inc. suspended several high-profile supporters of President Donald Trump, including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and attorney Sidney Powell, as part of an effort to remove accounts linked to the QAnon conspiracy group prominent at Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol.

The platform has also suspended the account of Ron Watkins, a prominent QAnon supporter whose father runs the online discussion forum 8kun, formally called 8Chan, which is a central hub for the QAnon conspiracy.
