Twitter is not banning Alex Jones; Jack Dorsey explains why

Share

Dorsey's announcement after Apple, Facebook and YouTube earlier this week removed some content from Jones and InfoWars.

"The war on your mind is in full swing as globalists remove outlets of liberty and truth, starting with the top of the speak: Alex Jones", a statement on his website read.

Facebook said Jones violated its hate speech policies, adding that the pages were taken down for "glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies".

Chris Pratt's 'Cowboy Ninja Viking' Movie Delayed Indefinitely
According to Hollywood entertainment portal, the producers of Cowboy Ninja Viking have removed the film from the release calendar. It's expected that MacLaren, along with star Chris Pratt , will remain attached to the project for the time being.

Jones, who has 858,000 followers on Twitter, has built up his profile while promulgating conspiracy theories.

"This is what serves the public conversation best", he said. Nevertheless, he said that Twitter will "enforce if he does" and will "continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring that tweets aren't artificially amplified". "Podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming".

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has tweetstormed his reasons for not banishing the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from his service, and in doing so he took a not-so-subtle swipe at Facebook and YouTube.

England cricketer Jimmy Anderson escapes injury on the golf course
The Indian top order continued with their disappointing show in the second innings as well and failed to make any impact. Team England wrapped the first test match in just four days and decided to make the most of it by playing golf.

Alex Jones has always operated on the fringes of the media world, but he's become a focal point more recently after spending a good deal of time in court. Jones, the founder of InfoWars, is known for spreading far-right conspiracy theories, including saying that the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was a hoax. Jones most recently made headlines when he counter-sued the families for legal fees. "He's much more careful with what he posts", Warzel said.

Curiously, Alex Jones hasn't yet commented on the decision via Twitter, another platform where his presence has been somewhat controversial.

Twitter has faced significant backlash for not taking action against neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and other extreme views. It's unclear how big his audience is now after the latest bans. This followed the nearly simultaneous removal of his podcasts and pages from Apple, Facebook, and Spotify for hate-speech violations.
