Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones, InfoWars | TheHill

Twitter is permanently banning conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his website InfoWars from its platform, citing abusive behavior.

“Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope,” Twitter’s safety team tweeted on Thursday.

“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,” Twitter added.

The company had previously issued a seven-day suspension for Jones last month.
