Why is Alex Jones Still Allowed on Twitter?


Why is Alex Jones Still Allowed on Twitter?

It’s not been a good week for alt-right radio personality Alex Jones. First a range of social networks and websites booted him off their platforms, including Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple. Then, YouPorn joined in and said the InfoWars host was banned from their site too (even though there wasn’t actually any Alex Jones content on there, thank God).

But it looks like one social media platform is sticking by the controversial conspiracy theorist, who in the past has declared  that 9/11 and the Sandy Hook massacre are hoaxes (the latter of which he is currently being sued for), despite a lack of evidence to support these claims.

Jack Dorsey, the CEO and co-founder of Twitter, said the micro-blogging site would not block Jones as he hasn’t violated any of the network’s rules.

He explained the decision in a series of tweets earlier today

Jones response to the removal of his content by tech giants is “censorship,” while others have applauded the platforms for standing up to hate speech.
