Twitter announced that it is permanently suspending Jacob Wohl, a 21-year-old Internet hoaxer and supporter of President Donald Trump, following the publication of a USA TODAY article in which he boasted of using the social media platform to spread lies and disinformation.
Wohl said when reached by USA TODAY that he had never created a false or misleading account. “I’ve had accounts for my businesses and my future think tank, but that’s about it,” Wohl said, confirming that all of those accounts had been “nuked” Tuesday afternoon. “I’ve not created fake accounts or bot armies or anything like that”.
When asked the name of the “future think tank,” Wohl declined to provide it, saying he planned to use it in a “clandestine manner”.
Among accounts that were suspended was that of Surefire Intelligence, Wohl’s operation that played a central role in his scheme to disgrace Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the days before the midterm elections.
Wohl said that he was not bothered by the suspension, saying that he was trending on Twitter even as his accounts had been suspended.
