A detailed look into how a popular anonymous QAnon influencer was identified from breadcrumbs he left across the internet

Just a sliver of the explanation:

On May 17, 2021, GhostEzra also posted a close-up picture from a gas station at night time in a post about rising fuel prices. 

By looking at U.S. national averages and trends for gas prices, we were able to narrow the location of the gas station in the photo down to three possible states. GhostEzra’s posting patterns also suggested that they were located in the Eastern U.S. time zone. This information enabled us to identify the exact location of the gas station pictured to be St Andrews Boulevard in Boca Raton, Florida.
