Twitter Permanently Bans Alex Jones

Twitter permanently banned Alex Jones and his website InfoWars Thursday. Twitter Safety explained that the ban was based on “new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations.”

The ban came shortly after Jones accosted CNN’s Oliver Darcy on Capitol Hill and livestreamed the encounter on Periscope. He also confronted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) about his bans from other social media platforms Wednesday in an exchange that quickly became heated.

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast that the ban was specifically due to the Periscope video Jones posted in which he insults Oliver Darcy and accuses him of trying to censor and control internet content.

Jones is an infamous conspiracy theorist who faced censure and a defamation lawsuit for saying the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012 was fake. He was also recently suspended by both Facebook and YouTube.
