San Francisco:Twitter said the accounts belonging to U.S. conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his media organisation InfoWars will remain online for now, one day after an investigation found that his accounts appeared to have repeatedly violated the company's rules.
In light of Jones and InfoWars removal from Facebook, the New York Times revealed inside sources claiming Mark Zuckerberg originally didn't want Jones's content removed.
A Twitter spokesperson said the company concluded that of the more than a dozen tweets included in CNN's Thursday report, seven were found to have violated Twitter's rules, CNNMoney reported on Friday.
According to the BI, Alex Jones has become somewhat of a hot topic internally, at the video sharing platform's headquarters, with several employees upset that the conspiracy theorist's content was allowed to stay on company servers. Most of his content is still available on Twitter, however, but Jones' Twitter days may have been numbered too, considering the social network had started removing his content, following a CNN report.
Content that is posted by InfoWars to other social media sites is often not also published to Twitter, they added. Twitter has come under fire for not taking action against Jones and his InfoWars account while other tech companies have.
InfoWars pushed back against the ban, saying Vimeo had joined "the anti free speech gulag".
YouTube had pulled four down videos hosted by Jones last month for violating its policies around hate speech and child endangerment. The content was reviewed by the platform's Trust and Safety team and a violation of Vimeo's terms of service was found in just 48 hours. For example, Jones has made multiple claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a government hoax, prompting lawsuits against the Infowars host.
If neither party appeals or their appeal fails, Facebook will remove the Pages indefinitely.
