Headline: Social media, the main terrorist weapon during the COVID-19 pandemic
The conspiracy theories that have permeated social media during the pandemic go beyond the idea that 5G signals are the ones that transmit the virus, or that COVID-19 is a hoax or that a billionaire wants to implant microchips in us. Terrorist groups, extremists, white supremacists and even Mexican cartels are using social networks to spread their narrative, increase global polarization and distrust of governments, and thus recruit more followers to instill more terror and hatred, and gain territory for their illegal activities .
