Weeks after platforms including YouTube, Facebook and Spotify banned “Infowars” host Alex Jones, Twitter has followed suit.
On Thursday, Twitter’s safety team tweeted its decision, which bars Jones from tweeting under his personal and “Infowars” accounts, as well as from creating new accounts:
Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope. We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations. https://t.co/gckzUAV8GL
