  • SOCIAL MEDIA SPOTLIGHT: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Sits Down with Sean Hannity

In a tweet thread, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey explained that Jones hasn't violated the company's rules, but Twitter will act if he does and it will "continue to promote a healthy conversational environment".

Dorsey's comments came the day after he announced that he would not take down Jones' personal account or his Infowars account ― even though almost every other major social media platform did so in recent days.

Apple's decision to remove all episodes of Jones' popular show - rather than just specific offending episodes - is one of the largest enforcement actions meant to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date. We'll enforce if he does.

In a series of tweets, Dorsey explained that Twitter won't suspend Jones' account because he didn't violate the company's policies, and highlighted the importance of the media fact-checking and debunking misinformation.

The rush of interested users comes after influential tech platforms - including Facebook, Google-owned YouTube and Apple - took their most assertive actions yet against Jones and his Infowars brand for violating their rules against hateful language.

Infowars fans subsequently sought other ways to find Jones's content, and his app shot up the Apple and Google Play app store rankings.

"We make sure all of our folks understand the cultural context of something that's said".

He said he wanted the company to avoid succumbing to outside pressure but instead impartially enforce straightforward principles "regardless of political viewpoints".

But at the heart of Dorsey's position is the idea that if we just understood why Twitter provides an outlet for the worst voices of the internet, maybe we would be fine with it. Dorsey also said that journalists should "document, validate, and refute" the falsities and "sensationalized issues" that accounts like Jones' peddle.

Jones has also claimed that the September 11, 2001 attacks on NY and Washington were staged by the USA government.

All users agree to comply with our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines when they sign up to use YouTube.

The Infowars app contains only rebroadcasts of the current day's episodes, subjecting a much smaller set of content to the rules. In June, The Washington Post reported that Dorsey, in an attempt to assuage conservative critics who think his platform is biased against them, took a private dinner with Republican leaders and conservative commentators in May.
