  • Twitter suspends Alex Jones for a week for inciting violence

Twitter suspended Infowars' Alex Jones' ability to tweet. However, neither social media company states how many violations would lead to a permanent ban. Jones was forced to delete the tweet featuring the Periscope stream and for seven days can browse Twitter but cannot tweet, like, or retweet other users tweets. In other words, they gave him special treatment, just as they did after CNN's report that about 20 of Jones' tweets violated their TOS.

Jones' restriction will last a week.

After drawing criticism for inaction, Twitter followed in the footsteps of its technology industry counterparts late Tuesday and suspended the far-right conspiratorial commentator Alex Jones, the company said.

I'd like to think that standing up against human rights violations would gain similar support, but such is not the case. The United States could easily replace Saudi crude thanks to its growing production, Dwarkin said.

Twitter is citing Jones for a tweet linking to a live video of Jones talking about "web censorship". In it, Jones says people "need to have their battle rifles and everything ready at their bedsides and you got to be ready because the media is so disciplined in their deception". The company's CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey spent much of last week explaining why Jones had not violated the service's rules while also engaging in discussion about problems with the rules.

Apple has removed the full library of his podcasts, Facebook has unpublished his pages, YouTube terminated his account, and other technology companies took similar action. "But this is consistent with how we enforce".

The conspiracy theorist faces five defamation lawsuits, as NPR's Bill Chappell and Anastasia Tsioulcas reported, including three from the families of Sandy Hook victims.
