Infowars Tweets Deleted After CNN Cites Examples of Twitter Policy Violations

Infowars Tweets Deleted After CNN Cites Examples of Twitter Policy Violations

The Infowars Official app has become the App Store's third most-downloaded news app this week after Apple removed access on Sunday to some of Jones' podcasts.

Apple has said that it will continue to monitor the App, but so far it has not broken its code of conduct.

On August 5, Apple pulled five of six Infowars podcasts from iTunes and its podcast apps.

"We strongly support all points of view being represented on the App Store, as long as the apps are respectful to users with differing opinions, and follow our clear guidelines, ensuring the App Store is a safe marketplace for all", the company's statement said. Jones reportedly said Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors interviewed by the news media were actors and compared student David Hogg to members of the Nazi Party.

Despite the moves by its rivals, Twitter has said it will not ban Jones from its site. When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts.

He was sued for defamation by families of some of the children killed in that attack, which left 20 children and six adults dead. 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".

Jack Dorsey isn't bowing to public pressure. "We do rank the timeline for relevance, so it might take some scrolling to see everything, but you can also turn that ranking off in the settings so you can see everything in "recently" order".

Finally, online digital platforms are taking the threat from Alex Jones seriously - and it's about time. Several journalists noted on Twitter that Dorsey can be hard to land an interview with, so his decision to go on Hannity's radio show packs an extra punch.

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.

Jones' Facebook account has also been suspended for 30 days but he still has a "verified" Twitter account.

Jones says his "InfoWars" shows, which are broadcast on radio, YouTube and other platforms, reach at least 70 million people a week.
