Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones and Infowars for ‘abusive behavior’

Twitter has permanently banned Alex Jones and Infowars from its platforms for “abusive behavior,” after the controversial conservative pundit was filmed berating a CNN journalist on the sidelines of a Senate social media hearing.

"Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope," Twitter said. "We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ previous violations."
The company added it will continue to hunt for “other accounts potentially associated” with Alex Jones to prevent any attempts to circumvent the ban.
“I was taken down not because we lie but because we tell the truth and because we were popular, and because we dared to go to that committee hearing and stand up to Rubio, stand up to the lies of mainstream media and speak the truth,”Jones stated following his suspension.

“And then we ran into Oliver Darcy who is the secret police captain, who admits he goes around and gets people like Infowars taken off other platforms because we confronted that monster that has abused us and lied about us,” Jones said about the encounter that reportedly got him banned.

Prior to his suspension, the commentator had about 900,000 followers on Twitter, while his Infowars account was popular with roughly 430,000 users. Calling the ban an act of “war” against conservative voices, Jones urged his supporters to resist “the full-on assault on this country.”

“This signifies that gloves are off, they are trying to destroy our basic birthright of the First Amendment,” Jones added. “The political establishment does not like Democrats or Republicans being challenged and they want to go out after the president… They are panicking, they are scared. They are making a move against all of us.”

Twitter banned Jones from its platforms a day after the company's chief executive, Jack Dorsey, testified before Congress where he insisted Twitter was impartial and denied any political bias against conservatives.

On the sidelines of Wednesday’s hearings, in which Facebook and Twitter participated, Jones could not contain his rage over the subject and clashed with Sen. Marco Rubio over the political censorship by the Silicon Valley giants. He later confronted CNN journalist Oliver Darcy in a Capitol Hill hallway, and recorded himself aggressively heckling his ‘biased’ reporting and attacking his appearance.

He was banned after confronting Marco Rubio and a CNN journalist yesterday.

Neither activity took place on Twitter..

Thus Twitter is happy to ban you for violating their Terms of Service even if that violation was committed as a private citizen not engaging on Twitter's platform

‘Dystopian screenplay’? Twitter considers ‘off-platform behavior’ when banning hate speech

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the company reviews real world activity when dealing with accounts of racists and hate-mongers. Some users were chilled by the prospect of being monitored offline, while others plain confused.

“We look at off-platform behavior as well. At things that aren’t just happening on Twitter, but happening on other platforms or in the real world,” Dorsey told political commentator and TV host Sean Hannity on his radio show on Wednesday
.
Some users caught an Orwellian vibe to the policy and suggested it’s unacceptable for a social media platform to poke its nose in what they’re doing when not logged on.

If only we could have a thread about the relationship between online hate speech and how it leads to real world violence.

If only there was a political forum where we could discuss this issue.

If only there was a place that valued free speech enough to allow such a discussion.

I never followed much of the stuff at Infowars. I only started to look at his stuff during 2016 presidential election, and what he said about Hillary Clinton was spot on.

His delivery style is difficult to digest. If he reigned it back a tad, he'd be far better in my view.

All the liberal lefty virtue signallers should realise.
Their rights to voice opinion on social media are next to go.

I'd hazard a guess and say he has a slight problem with the booze.
He wouldn't be someone I watch, but censoring him is the wrong strategy.
Not only because he's only expressing an opinion, but that it sets a precedent.

I wonder who's next on the list ?
