Twitter has suspended the personal account of Infowars host Alex Jones for seven days after he tweeted a link to a video urging supporters to grab their “battle rifles.” The conspiracy theorist will still be allowed to monitor Twitter but will be barred from posting anything from his account, the Associated Press reports.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was widely criticized last week for defending the company’s decision not to ban Jones by saying the far-right provocateur has not violated any rules.
