Twitter bans Alex Jones for 'behaviour' violations

Marco Rubio Calls Alex Jones a Clown: ‘Don’t Touch Me Again!’

After months of being told exactly what kind of message he's been sending by refusing to ban Alex Jones and his ilk from Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey finally banned the InfoWars host from his social media platform. CNN even provided Dorsey with a list of seven tweets that violated the site's terms of use, and yet only now is Jones finally banned, after there could be no way for Twitter to talk its way around letting him remain on the platform.

Hopefully, we'll begin to see a positive change in the way Twitter keeps users safe, and that Jones will continue to have his platform chipped away until he fades into the void.

The company said Jones would not be able to create new accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones after posting a video on Wednesday that violates the company's policy against "abusive behavior".

Le’Veon Bell Seems Rattled By Steelers Teammates Blasting Him Over Holdout
Or maybe they just wish they knew what Bell's plan was if holding out into the regular season was his strategy all along. What the Steelers can wait for at this point is Bell to join them.

Before that hearing, Jones spotted a reporter waiting in the hall outside the meeting room, and Jones proceeded to berate the journalist, who has covered Jones' website and his suspensions from social media. The aggressive encounter was filmed by Jones on Periscope, which is owned by Twitter.

Jones continued to repeatedly interrupt Rubio, calling him a "frat boy" and a 'snake'. Twitter's chief executive Jack Dorsey testified at both hearings, but did not appear to witness the confrontation. Some of the parents of the victims have sued Jones for mental and emotional distress.

At one point, he said Darcy was "smiling like a possum that crawled out of the rear end of a dead cow. I'm asking you not to touch me again", Rubio said.

Real Madrid manager Lopetegui admits "problem" in having three quality goalkeepers
Twitter may be gleaming with the success of Real Madrid but fans need to remember we're just three games into a very long season. The Belgian number one is clearly happy at Madrid but may have irritated a few Chelsea fans with his latest statement.

Twitter's first punishment was minor compared to the repercussions that Jones and InfoWars faced from other tech companies just days before.

Twitter initially took a more tepid stance on taking action against Jones.

Among other claims, Alex Jones (file photo) has called the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting a hoax. He has sought to have the lawsuit dismissed. Thus far, efforts to hold Jones accountable to the community guidelines of sites he leveraged have resulted in a almost 50 per cent loss of viewership to Infowars.
