Twitter says it has noticed an account linked to conspiracy-monger Alex Jones and Infowars, and the accounts have been suspended.

A spokesman from Twitter confirmed that the accounts had been removed. There was no additional comment from the company.

Twitter have permanently suspended @realalexjones and @Infowars from Twitter and Periscope in early September. Twitter said the action was based on the reports of tweets and videos that violated the policy against abusive behaviour.

The company said they will continue on their investigation to evaluate reports as per regarding any other accounts that are associated with @realalexjones or @Infowars and would act if the contents violate the rules and regulations.

Other tech companies, including PayPal, YouTube, Apple and Spotify have limited or banned Jones’ activities on their sites.
