YouTube removes Alex Jones' channel for violating its community guidelines

But Dorsey said it's not up to Twitter to disown him.

Twitter positioned itself this week as an outlier among technology companies and streaming services that have acted in recent days to limit the platform enjoyed by Alex Jones and his Infowars shows because of allegations of hate speech.

Publishing platforms have faced strong pressure to take action against Jones and Infowars over the past few months, but Apple was the first major company to sanction the broadcaster in its entirety.

In a series of tweets Tuesday, Dorsey said that Jones has not violated Twitter's rules. We'll enforce if he does.

Infowars host Alex Jones has been booted off Facebook, Apple, Spotify, and YouTube for violating the companies' hate-speech guidelines.

On Monday, InfoWars host Alex Jones raged after his coffers of conspiracy-filled content were deleted from YouTube (where his channels boasted 2.4 million followers). In a side swipe at the suggestion that numerous bans that have been slapped on Jones and Infowars in recent days have been kneejerk reactions, he adds: "we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified".

Dorsey said that it's the responsibility of journalists to "document, validate, and refute" rumors and sensationalized issues spread by accounts like Jones's so "people can form their own opinions". "This is what serves the public conversation best". Sometimes these expressions may be offensive, controversial, and/or bigoted.

Jones' Instagram (owned by Facebook) account is still active, as is his Periscope account, which is owned by Twitter.

"The war on your mind is in full swing as globalists remove outlets of liberty and truth, starting with the top of the speak: Alex Jones", a statement on his website read.

Kevin M. Kruse, a historian at Princeton, sought to portray Dorsey's resort to Twitter's codes of conduct as blind to Jones's online behavior.

"We have taken it down for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies", Facebook said.
