We Do Not Shadow Ban for Political Views — Twitter CEO

Twitter's chief further explained that, when dealing with hate speech reports, the company's moderators also review the users' relevant past activities on Twitter and consider the "cultural context" of the conversation.

Apple said it regularly monitors all apps for content violations.

And if we're using it - all of us, no matter if you fact check every tweet or if you're telling people that the very-real Sandy Hook shooting didn't happen - our voices all count more or less the same. Facebook removed four of Jones's pages; YouTube terminated his channel, with its 2.4 million subscribers; and Apple removed the majority of Jones's podcasts from iTunes and its podcast app.

Content that appears to violate Twitter's rules appears over and over again in the hundreds of hours of video available on the accounts that Jones and InfoWars maintain on Twitter and Periscope, a live-streaming video service that Twitter owns.

"We do not shadow ban according to political ideology or viewpoint or content, period", said Dorsey, referring to the practice of shutting down users' access to another user's content. "And we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified", Dorsey said in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

But Web users can still access Infowars through its website and through the same tech companies that just banned it. Google offers the Infowars app for Android users, and Apple customers can download it through the App Store.

The idea would be similar to how special operations forces from across the military services are distributed to various commands. Mattis told reporters earlier this week. "There is a threat out there but it's being handled by the U.S.

"We do believe in the power of free expression, but we need to balance that with the bad-faith actors who intentionally try to silence others", he said.

Six families of the victims have sued Jones for defamation. It has suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job orchestrated by the U.S. government.

Twitter has drawn public outcry for not removing Jones' account.

Spotify, YouTube, and Facebook have all only removed several individual broadcasts by Jones.

Regarding what does constitute a violation of Twitter's rules, Dorsey said "any sort of violent speech - encouragement toward violence, harassment - is directly against our terms of service, and we take immediate action on it".
