NEW YORK Twitter permanently banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his InfoWars show for abusive behavior, day after CEO Jack Dorsey testified before Congress about alleged bias against conservatives on the platform. Companies say Jones wo be able to create NEW accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones. In a tweet, it said it would continue to monitor reports about other accounts potentially associated with Jones or InfoWars, and will take action if it find any attempts to circumvent the ban. Twitter Say Jones Post video on Wednesday that violated the companys policy against abusive behavior. That video shows Jones berating CNN journalist Oliver Darcy for some 10 minutes in between two congressional hearings on social media. Dorsey testified at both hearings, but did not appear to witness confrontation. Jones had about 900 000 followers on Twitter. InfoWars had about 430 000. Jones did not immediately respond to a request for comment. NEW Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone praised the Twitters ' action in a tweet. Glad Twitter is taking steps to put an end to abusive behavior from Alex Jones & InfoWars, tweet state. Tweets designed to threaten, belittle, demean and silence individuals have no place on this platform. Twitter had previously suspended Jones for a week. But until now it had resisted muzzling Jones further. Other tech companies have limited Jones by suspending him for longer periods, as Facebook does and by taking down his pages and radio stations. Jones heckled Darcy in Capitol Hill hallway where reporters were waiting to enter the House Committee Room. He criticized journalists ' reporting and appearance, referencing his skinny jeans and repeatedly saying, just look at these guys ' eyes and look at that smile. At one point, he Say Darcy was smiling like a possum that crawled out of the rear end of a dead cow. Thats what you look like. You look like possum that get caught doing some really nasty stuff in my view. Youre public figure too. Darcy has aggressively questioned social media companies about the forbearance they show Jones, asking why they have allowed him to remain on their platforms for as long as they have. Jones is currently active on Facebook; his personal suspension there recently expire. Apple, YouTube and Spotify also permanently removed material Jones had publish. Facebook did not immediately respond to message asking whether it would also ban Jones. Dorsey originally defended his companys decision not to ban Jones, tweeting that Jones hasnt violated our rules but if he does well, enforce. Them Were going to hold Jones to the same standard we hold to every account, not taking one-off actions to make us feel good in the short term, and adding fuel to NEW conspiracy theories, Dorsey tweeted on Aug. 7, after other companies took action against Jones. But a week later, Twitter joined other tech companies in muzzling Jones, even if it was only for a week.
