Twitter has temporarily suspended infowars’ Alex Jones
Twitter caves to the pressure, but so far they are only banning InfoWars temporarily.

Exclusive: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Addresses Alex Jones ‘Timeout’ Decision
Will InfoWars regain control of their Twitter account after seven days or is this just a step toward banning them?

Gotta wonder if Alex Jones isn't really working for the other side... Alex Jones is probably working for Alex Jones. I do think he does a poor job of representing patriots and it is likely that he is keeping more effective people from rising to the top. So it could be that he is taking one for the other team, making anyone with similar ideals look like conspiracy nuts. But it's probably more likely that it's just greed and his ego getting in the way!
Make Trona great again!

Facebook admits PragerU videos were 'mistakenly removed'
The censorship continues. These videos got restored, but only after the group filed a complaint.

Trump: ‘I’d rather have fake news than censorship’
Trump says he'd rather have Fake News like CNN than allow anyone's voice to be censored. Freedom of speech is one of the cornerstones of our democracy!

Is Alex Jones the beginning of conservative censorship?
Censorship is a bad idea. Period.

Trump: Google, Twitter, Facebook 'better be careful'
Hopefully we'll get legislation to limit unfair practices by big tech!

Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones and Infowars
Three strikes and you're out! YouTube, Facebook, and now Twitter all ban Mr. Jones. He still has his infowars.com website, but who knows if that site will be targeted by the FCC or whoever is in charge of allocating web domains.

Delete Your Twitter Today
It doesn't make sense to ban Alex Jones from Twitter for something he didn't do on Twitter... :shrug:
