A Twitter spokesperson said the company investigated a report by CNN that InfoWars and Jones tweets violated its terms of service, and found seven tweets that were not within regulations. The tweets were deleted by the InfoWars staff, according to Jones, as a way to “take the super high road.” He did, however, contend that the tweets were not violations of Twitter rules.
InfoWars and Jones have been under fire over the last few weeks. They have been removed by Facebook, YouTube and even the MailChimp email service for alleged violations. Jones has since resurfaced on Real.Video, a video site that promotes free speech. He blamed Chinese Communists for his ban in a video statement.
CNN reported that InfoWars’ and Jones’ Twitter accounts published content that attacked religion and gender identities, harassed individuals, glorified violence and promoted conspiracy theories.
