4Chan's QAnon's +++ vs. Trump's. Post timestamps

Someone is stirring up 4Chan (and some regions of Twitter) by posting various predictions of a coming "storm" of political change - strongly favoring Trump.

One piece of evidence that's repeated is regarding this tweet:

Source: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/927645648685551616

[Screenshots are PST, UTC-8]

and this post on /pol/

They are generally contrasted like:


With the suggestion that QAnon's post happened before Trump, so Trump was giving implicit support to QAnon. (Instead of the what it seems, shoehorning "and there's lots more" into his remaining characters)

What seems (most likely) to have happened is they took screenshots from different timezones. Both 4Chan and Twitter display times in the user's local time, so the Trump tweet is at 1:15PM PST, and the QAnon post is at 2:07PM PST.

However I can't entirely confirm this as there's only the 4plebs archive, so I need to look into how timestamps move across from 4chan to 4plebs.

the trump post is in that thread at 16:55 (I don't know how to link it... scroll up)

edit... well 16:55 on my timeszone, my Q post is 17:07

Pfft, so really it's just Qanon trying to imply that Trump's +++ has some meaning, then someone took the screenshots with the misleading timestamps.

It seems to be just a bunch of trolling. Interestingly though some of the 9/11 Truthers seem to take it seriously. I got this email on Dec 6.

The gist of the Qanon story seems to be that Trump is about to "drain the swamp" by arresting everyone from Hillary to Muller. It's some strange stuff, a kind of mutated version of the Pizzagate theory.
