The internet can be a wonderful place, filled with pictures of cats and let’s play videos, but it can also be a strange and mysterious one. Even though it puts so much knowledge at our fingertips, not everything is easily explained or solved even with all this information. Plenty of the web itself is full of mysteries and conspiracy theories, both with and without resolutions.
Take for example the QAnon conspiracy theory (the QAnon sticker is pictured above). Based on posts by an anonymous user known only as “Q”. Followers of the posts believe that US President Donald Trump is fighting a secret war against a cabal of paedophiles that includes prominent Democrats and Hollywood celebrities. No part of this theory has any basis in facts, but it is quite an entertaining story. Regardless, social media alogrithms feed users who show interest in posts and videos related to QAnon. As a result, QAnon has blown upon Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
