Default Twitter suspends conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for one week

What the heck is this guy doing to rile everyone

Quote:
The news was first shared by an InfoWars personality, who tweeted a screenshot of Jones' Twitter account -- indicating the company limited some of Jones' account features temporarily.
Quote:
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed the authenticity of the screenshot. The spokesperson said the content which prompted Twitter to suspend Jones was a video published Tuesday in which he said, "Now is time to act on the enemy before they do a false flag."
Quote:
On Friday, one day after a CNN investigation found that Jones' Twitter accounts appeared to have repeatedly violated the company's rules, Twitter said the accounts belonging to Jones and his fringe media organization InfoWars would remain online.
Quote:
At the time, a Twitter spokesperson said the company concluded that of the more than a dozen tweets included in CNN's Thursday report, seven were found to have violated Twitter's rules. Twitter would have required those tweets to be deleted, if they were to have remained up.
Quote:
But after CNN's investigation was published, the tweets cited in it were almost immediately deleted from the social media website. Jones said on his program that he had instructed his staff to do so and "take the super high road," though he contested whether the tweets violated any Twitter rules.

Quote:
Twitter is one of the only major social media companies that has not scrubbed its platform of Jones or InfoWars. Recently, Jones has seen the vast majority of the social media infrastructure for his media empire crumble. Apple has removed the full library of his podcasts, Facebook has unpublished his pages, YouTube terminated his account, and other technology companies took similar action.

However, InfoWars apps remain available through the Google Play store and Apple's app store.
I think I'll listen to the pod cast tonight. I like scary stories sometimes.

Twitter admits InfoWars violated its rules, but says it will remain on the platform

maybe it's not all about what they did or didn't do, maybe it's has something to do with animosity, bias and power issues on others part. maybe?

Alex Jones is a stupid conspiracy tard who spews nothing but lies. If Twitter wants to suspend him then good for Twitter. I am sure that no matter where Jones moves to the stupid **** for brain retards who believe his crap will follow him no matter where he goes. I am sure there is a generic twitter or generic facebook out there that is desperate enough for traffic that they will allow Jones to host his nonsense there.
