Twitter defends not suspending Alex Jones

Apple Facebook You Tube withdraw access to Alex Jones

An online porn site, YouPorn, said Tuesday it had deleted six of his videos and would no longer host any content related to the prolific conspiracy theorist. "If your policy doesn't account for Jones-like activity on/offline then the policy isn't serving a healthy conversation", Horne said.

In a statement, McAdams stated that he and Horton were suspended for defending the former US diplomat Peter Van Buren, who was also banned from the platform following an argument with a man allegedly funded by socialist billionaire George Soros.

Infowars broke the app stores top 10 in the news category on Tuesday, edging out CNN, Fox News and The New York Times apps. He's now being sued by the victims' family members over harassment they received from "Infowars" fans and has been booted from a number of major platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Spotify and Apple. Days after Apple, Spotify, Youtube et al turned their backs on the conspiracy theorist, the app's U.S. popularity manifestly increased, coming in as the fourth most popular news app in Apple's App Store, and eleventh on the Google Play Store.

A former communications director for Twitter, Emily Horne, responded directly to Dorsey on Twitter, disagreeing with the decision not to ban Jones and faulting the company's CEO for appearing to blame the outcry against Twitter on "communications".

Basically, Jones is not in violation of Twitter's content terms of service on the platform in isolation.

Murphy, who has represented CT in the US Senate since 2013, was among the vocal supporters of the controversial decision by several tech companies to suspend Jones from their platforms. He did this only after learning of Apple's decision, Byers said, explaining why Facebook announced its decision at 3 a.m. PT. YouTube and Spotify reacted similarly. The Infowars YouTube channel was also terminated.

Dorsey said Twitter would hold Jones to the same standard as it does every account. The InfoWars podcasts serve as advertising for a wide range of wellness and survivalism products, making Jones as much as $18 million per year.

His site Infowars has accused victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting of being "actors" in a plot to discredit the gun lobby. "While we welcome everyone to express themselves on our service, we prohibit targeted behavior that harasses, threatens, or uses fear to silence the voices of others". Jones most recently made headlines when he counter-sued the families for legal fees.

The Twitter CEO additionally called on journalists to document, validate and refute information on Jones' account which can "sensationalize issues" and "spread substantiated rumours".

Without the exposure from these platforms, Buckford introduced a new way to get his message to viewers: Brainfight Hivemind, which involves Buckford screaming at a swarm of bees that are released into the world so they can sting his message "directly into your bloodstream". It's unclear how big his audience is now after the latest bans.
