Conspiracy theory on U.S. election spreading in Japan 

Sunday’s Asahi ran an extensive report on the conspiracy theory about the results of the U.S. presidential election last November by giving top play to an interview with a Trump supporter in West Virginia who was arrested for trespassing in the Capitol building and still believes that former President Trump won the election. In a related story, the paper wrote that support for the conspiracy theory that originated in the United States is also spreading in Japan’s cyberspace, alleging that there is a community in Japan that supports QAnon. The paper wrote that Twitter has frozen the accounts of key members of the community, but they have continued to send out messages via different social networking service sites.
