Twitter Hasn’t Suspended Alex Jones and Here’s Why
Social media giants Facebook, Spotify, Apple and YouTube have all banned Alex Jones, the conspiracy therorist behind InfoWars, for hate speech. Facebook claims Jones repeatedly violated community standards and an Apple spokesperson told Buzzfeed, “Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users.”
YouTube and Spotify also cite hate speech as their reason behind pulling the plug on Jones’ accounts.
However, Twitter has not followed suit and today caused outrage in the liberal community. Twitter CEO and founder Jack Dorsey explained why on his personal account today.
Dorsey will also reportedly be on Hannity’s radio show to discuss their decision.
This may come as a surprise to conservatives who have been accusing the Twitter platform of shadow banning their Tweets.
