Twitter finally deletes some of Alex Jones, InfoWars videos and tweets

Twitter finally deletes some of Alex Jones, InfoWars videos and tweets

Alex Jones is a risky man.

What's more, Twitter's vice president for trust and safety Del Harvey reportedly said in an internal email that if Jones had demonstrated some of the behavior on Twitter that he had on Facebook and YouTube, he would definitely have been booted.

Congratulations to Care2 members who signed the petition and to all the other activists who worked to eliminate Jones' hateful content from social media. Apple did not host the InfoWars content, but anyone with an Apple device could find and download the podcast episodes through Apple services. "And we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified".

Apple's decision to remove all episodes of Jones' popular show - rather than just specific offending episodes - is one of the largest enforcement actions meant to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date. "If an app or user violates these, we take action".

And on August 6, YouTube took a step further by eliminating the Alex Jones Channel. (In fact, the terms of service for Infowars.com itself includes such a provision.) It's also worth noting that the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment does not protect defamatory speech or incitements to violence. "We'll enforce if he does".

Hay al menos cuatro muertos — Tiroteo en Canadá
Las circunstancias del tiroteo en la capital de la provincia de New Brunswick aún no se han dado a conocer . El primer ministro de Canadá Justin Trudeau reaccionó de inmediato ante esta "terrible noticia".

Spotify joined in by completely removing "The Alex Jones Show" from its platform.

Among other claims, Alex Jones (file photo) has called the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting a hoax. Several of the children's families - who have been harassed and threatened by people who believe the conspiracy theory - have filed lawsuits against Jones. When asked about this questionable decision, Facebook's News Feed director John Hegeman stated, "I guess just for being false that doesn't violate the community standards". However, he adds that students should be free to follow whomever they please online without fearing that it will impact their college admissions changes.

Under mounting public pressure, Facebook has now changed its mind. As CNN points out, "his blog, Infowars.com, has over 3 million American viewers every month and his radio show, which is syndicated on more than 60 stations, is reported to have anywhere between 2 million and 5 million listeners daily".

"The truth is that there are only a few companies that control the majority of mainstream internet platforms, and when they all act in unison - at the same time - that could lead to more conspiracy theories".
