Twitter Won’t Ban InfoWars Or Alex Jones Despite Violations Of Its Terms

"We'd love to openly discuss and help design protocols to make decentralized policy and enforcement possible".

But CNN found that the same videos that led to Infowars' banishment from other social media sites also were present on Twitter.

Jones said on his program Friday that he had instructed his staff to do so and "take the super high road", though he contested whether the tweets violated any Twitter rules.

After a CNN inquiry found ten tweets from Alex Jones' accounts that it felt should've qualified as breaking Twitter's rules, the service admitted late Friday that it agreed on seven of them. While Twitter required those tweets be deleted, the company can not use them as grounds to take further action against the accounts, the spokesperson said.

The Hanesbrands Inc . is having a distance of -10.08% form 20 day moving average, SMA 50 of -6.76% and an SMA 200 of -16.79%. The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at this link .

"We know that's hard for many but the reason is simple: he hasn't violated our rules", Dorsey said.

Infowars did not immediately return a Daily Dot request for comment asking who had deleted the tweets and why.

But as the report notes, Jones and Infowars' accounts remain for now.

Earlier this week, Mr Dorsey said the social media site would not remove the conspiracy theorist because he had not yet broken any of the site's rules. But before any action could take place, those tweets mysteriously disappeared - an action that Twitter denies having taken themselves, suggesting that Jones and InfoWars probably removed the posts themselves.

Thai Crypto Exchanges Have Applied for New Digital Assets Licenses
The SEC also requires digital asset exchanges to based in the country and be of "sound financial status". Thereafter, the Ministry has 60 days to make a decision whether to approve a license.

Among the tweets, CNN discovered were Sandy Hook conspiracy theories and tweets attacking Parkland shooting survivors.

The reporting by CNN to uncover these tweets is commendable, but it shouldn't be up to news organizations to expose these problems. Jones has repeatedly degraded individuals of the Muslim faith. Plenty of people have pointed out Jones' vile behavior long before even other sites started removing his content. The network should be more vigilant in enforcing its own rules and acknowledging where it's made mistakes in the past.

The Twitter spokesperson said Friday that the executive, Del Harvey, had only meant to specifically reference Jones' personal account, not the InfoWars account as well, and that the company should have "been more explicit about that".
