Twitter says Infowars hasn't 'violated our rules.' It looks like that's not the case

But a CNN review of Jones' accounts show that all of the videos that initially led the other tech companies to take action against Jones were in fact posted to Twitter by Jones or InfoWars. All were still live on Twitter as of the time this article was published. CNN noted this in a request for comment from Twitter on Wednesday morning, before Harvey's email was made public. The company declined to comment at the time.

Favorite tweet:

Today we found out that he lied. Alex Jones had indeed broken Twitter’s rules. And CNN had the receipts to prove it. @jack dared journalists to do their job, and they did. https://t.co/xPbrNlk6j7

"It's worth noting that at least some of the content Alex Jones published on other platforms (e.g., Facebook and YouTube) that led to them taking enforcement against him would have also violated our policies had he posted it on Twitter," Harvey wrote . On Monday, after his accounts were deleted from other platforms, Jones tweeted, "We've been banned completely on Facebook, Apple, & Spotify," and asked, "What conservative news outlet will be next?" And, she said, "If people report past content that includes those types of accusations, we would require him to remove it but would not further penalize him as we work to avoid retroactive applications of our policy." For instance, Jones has falsely tweeted that the FBI said "no one [was] killed" at Sandy Hook and suggested that the father of a victim was reading a script ahead of a press conference. In one video posted to Twitter by Jones, the InfoWars founder called CNN Senior Media Correspondent Brian Stelter the "literal demon spawn of the pit of Hell," a "smiling leering Devil," and a "degenerate sack of anti-human trash."

A CNN review of Alex Jones' and InfoWars' Twitter accounts suggest the social media platform's statements about its stance are incorrect, or that its rules are not being applied to Jones and InfoWars.
