After CNN published a story pointing out specific tweets and videos on Alex Jones’ Twitter accounts that were in violation of the social-media platform’s policies, the content was removed from the site, the outlet reported Wednesday evening. The tweets in question—which include posts saying “no one [was] killed” during the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, that Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg was a Nazi, and that same-sex marriage legalization would open the door for pedophilia—were all removed after the report pointed out how they had violated Twitter’s rules. A spokesperson for the social platform told CNN that the company had not removed the content, explaining that “Jones or someone with access to his accounts had likely removed the tweets.” A spokesperson for Jones did not respond to requests for comment. This comes after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly discussed why Alex Jones had not been booted off Twitter, saying the InfoWars chief hadn’t broken any of Twitter’s rules. Other sites—including Facebook, YouTube, Apple, and Spotify—have all recently removed Jones’ content from their respective platforms.
