Summary

Fortunately, social media still holds plenty of information about plans for more violence, and this time we can be more prepared. While the social media sites now hosting the far right are more obscure, they are not secret; these posts are designed to reach an audience.Calls for armed marches in the week leading up to the inauguration have been circulating, but the digital chaos of the past few days has made organization less clear. Others read into different elements of the conspiracy, inferring that Trump would be out of town and in a safe location, thereby clearing the way for citizen and military action against Biden and Congress on inauguration day.After Trump’s social media deplatforming, his riotous supporters’ main guidance has disappeared. One call from him for action around the inauguration is all it would take to put organized planning into motion across social media.Even without signals from Trump, threats are still present and diverse. The responses from media and tech companies have enraged much of the Trump base on alternative social media, and these organizations should be prepared for threats and perhaps violence in the coming days.Will all these threatened events come to pass?
