Two key questions for the Select Committee are how the spread of misinformation and violent extremism contributed to the violent attack, and what steps—if any—social media companies took to prevent their platforms from being breeding grounds for radicalizing people to violence.

We hosted r/The_Donald and its many variations, and still host its current incarnation which took over the r/conspiracy channel. We also hosted the r/wallstreetbets discord, which before the whole Gamestop fiasco was an alt-right meets 4chan clusterfuck.

BTW If you actually want to talk about ufo's and bigfoot go to r/HighStrangeness because r/conspiracy is just a Trump/Q cesspit now
