Twitter has kicked right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones off of their platform.
Twitter stated it would take action if Alex Jones tried to find any way to circumvent the ban, such as creating a new account under a new name.
This ban arrives weeks after other social media platforms removed him off their platform. At the time, Twitter stated that Jones had not violated any of their policies:
The ban was due to a video Alex Jones posted on Twitter on Wednesday that shows Jones berating CNN’s Oliver Darcy. While Darcy remains mostly silent throughout the video, Jones continually insults Darcy, including numerous negative comments on Darcy’s appearance. Twitter says this violated their policy against “abusive behavior.”
