So, what does the cryptic message mean?
What does wwg1wga mean?
The acronym ‘wwg1wga’ means: “WHERE WE GO ONE WE GO ALL.”
The cryptic message has been trending on Twitter for a few years now, so it’s not clear who originally came up with it.
The BBC first reported about wwg1wga in a 2018 news story. The publication wrote that Donald Trump supporters allegedly had shirts, signs and banners with this exact slogan.
Another slogan that people apparently wore was “We are Q”, referring to the conspiracy movement QAnon.
So, what is QAnon?
According to the BBC, QAnon appears to be a bizarre conspiracy theory claiming the Trump administration is carrying out a secret war against an evil international cabal. Of course, since the alleged online movement is shrouded in mystery, this is just speculation.
Sky News reports that the movement, which supports Donald Trump, claims the US president is fighting against former presidential candidate Hilary Clinton and billionaire George Soros.
It’s unknown who stands behind the QAnon movement and why they are posting these messages.
Moreover, the cryptic posts often sound like riddles encouraging other social media users to engage with the conspiracy.
Facebook bans QAnon accounts
Today, October 7th, Facebook has announced that it will remove all accounts linked to the conspiracy theory from its platforms.
In a statement, the company said:
“Starting today, we will remove Facebook Pages, Groups and Instagram accounts.”
How did QAnon start?
The Independent has reported that the theories started after one anonymous user signed off as ‘Q’ on the imageboard website 4chan. The person used the name ‘Q Clearance Patriot’.
Q Clearance or Q access authorization is the level of security clearance required to access top secret restricted data within the American State Department of Energy. The 4chan user was probably using this to give his messages an air of importance and authority.
And since then, the cryptic messages have jumped to social media sites, attracting the attention of mainstream media, as well as celebrities and their fans.
There are also many Reddit and Twitter threads linked to the conspiracy movement.
