INFOWARS PURGED: Anti-Free Speech Twitter permanently BANS Alex Jones and InfoWars

TWITTER has permanently banned right-wing journalist and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and news outlet InfoWars from its platform.

The social media giant said Jones will not be able to create new accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones.

Jones posted a video on Wednesday in violation of the company’s policy against “abusive behaviour” according to Twitter.

The video in question shows Jones shouting at and berating CNN journalist Oliver Darcy for some 10 minutes during congressional hearings about social media.

Jones had about 900,000 followers on Twitter and Infowars had about 430,000.

Twitter had previously suspended Jones for a week but until now had resisted muzzling Jones further.

Other tech companies have limited Jones by suspending him for longer periods, as Facebook did, and by taking down his pages and radio stations.
