01) Alex Jones Somehow Getting Crazier


“Alex Jones learned nothing from having his entire YouTube channel deleted, but maybe a week suspension from Twitter will work?!?

After a week of backlash, Twitter has finally suspended the two accounts maintained by far-right conspiracy theorist and Infowars personality Alex Jones — but only for a week.

Twitter first suspended Jones’s personal account after he tweeted a video on Tuesday, August 14 in which he called for his followers to ready their “battle rifles” to act against a wide array of opponents, including the mainstream media — a clear violation of Twitter’s content policy against speech or groups that “use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.”

Notably, Jones made the video while using the Twitter-owned live-streaming service Periscope — essentially the only live-streaming platform he hasn’t been banned from since YouTube, Facebook, and other major social media sites moved to ban him and remove his content.
