Type Social networking website
Twitter is a social network where users can post "tweets" up to 140-characters in length. Twitter utilizes "hashtags", which are words or phrases starting with the pound symbol (#). GamerGate was started when Adam Baldwin used the hashtag #GamerGate in reference to one of Internet Aristocrat's Quinnspiracy Theory videos.
Role in Gamergate
In August 2018, Will Wheaton announces that he will leave Twitter on August 17,2018 and calling it D-Day (known as "DeactiDay"), it's because he, fans, and friends do not like how Jack Dorsey and the higher ups refuse to ban Alex Jones, it's because the latter did not break anything in the TOS.
