Stephen Colbert Obliterates Alex Jones With His Rant Impression

"We'll enforce if he does", he said.

Facebook said Jones violated its hate speech policies, adding that the pages were taken down for "glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies".

The InfoWars app is still available on the Apple and Google app stores. "Your platform does not operate in a vacuum", she said in a tweet to Dorsey. He is perhaps most notorious for claiming that the 2012 Sandy Hook mass school shooting, which left 26 children and adults dead, was a hoax and that the surviving relatives are paid actors. Dorsey said the company was committed to promoting "a healthy conversational environment" - which included Jones.

Dorsey noted that the site will "hold Jones to the same standard we hold to every account, not taking one-off actions to make us feel good in the short term, and adding fuel to new conspiracy theories".

A message Tuesday afternoon from Twitter Safety stated that "tweets from Alex Jones and InfoWars are not now in violation of our Rules".

While there were some positive reactions, which is unsurprising considering Jones has over 860,000 followers on the platform and Infowars has some 425,000, scores of Twitter users responded with upset and disdain over the decision.

Twitter had not removed Jones or InfoWars from its service, as of Monday afternoon NY time.

Meanwhile, YouTube also got in on the disciplinary action, removing some of Jones' videos and suspending his capacity to broadcast live for a considerable 90-day period.

"We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with different opinions".

"Twitter is reflective of real conversations happening in the world and that sometimes includes perspectives that may be offensive, controversial, and/or bigoted", she said.

Dorsey took a thinly veiled swipe at Facebook and YouTube, which acted only after Apple removed Jones, by saying Twitter did not "simply react to outside pressure".

"Let's talk about the elephant in the room, the martyrdom of ol' Tuck Buckford at the hands of Silicon Valley snowboys and soyflakes", Buckford ranted.
