Twitter Bans Alex Jones and Infowars A Day After Jack Faced Congress
A day after Alex Jones confronted Jack Dorsey, founder of Twitter, on Capitol Hill, the website has banned the popular right-wing radio host and his website’s 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
