Twitter made its decision one day after Jones accosted CNN reporter Oliver Darcy on Capitol Hill, and livestreamed the encounter through Periscope, which Twitter owns.
Twitter has finally 'permanently banned' Alex Jones and Infowars' accounts, weeks after Jones was banned or suspended by other major tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google's YouTube.
Alex Jones was banned from Twitter reportedly in response to posting video from this exchange from yesterday with a CNN reporter, but was it that -- or his physical proximity to Jack Dorsey at the social media hearings?

Jones was on Capitol Hill yesterday on the same day Jack Dorsey was, to give testimony on Russian manipulation of social media in America.

Shame on Twitter for taking so long. But I'm glad they finally did the right thing.
This is going to get even more complicated and bad.

Even though life is emerging following our COVID-19 lockdown, it’s not exactly time to celebrate defeating the insidious virus just yet. CDC officials warn that once a resurgence of the virus hits this winter, it could prove even more disastrous for the U.S. healthcare system than the opening salvo. That would follow the pattern suffered […]
