Vimeo removes Infowars content

Twitter has said that Infowars and Jones will be permitted to stay on the site because they haven't violated its policies.

Infowars had less than a dozen videos uploaded on the platform up until Wednesday, but more than 50 were posted to the site in the following days.

The one platform that is yet to ban Jones is Twitter.

This makes Vimeo - a video uploading and sharing service similar to YouTube - the latest platform to remove Infowars content.

The theories he has promoted include that the September 11, 2001 attacks on NY and Washington were staged by the U.S. government.

Not long after Facebook and Apple took action, YouTube removed The Alex Jones Channel, which counts close to 2.5 million subscribers.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, Apple confirmed it had also removed Jones' podcast for violating its guidelines on hate speech. The move was thought to be galvanised by a social media backlash, with activists flagging Spotify's continued streaming of the content, which other sites had chose to remove. For example, Jones has made multiple claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a government hoax, prompting lawsuits against the Infowars host.

Facebook recently chose to slap the conspiracy theorist with a 30-day "time out" from Facebook, for violating its community standards.

It marks a major about face for Facebook, which had said in recent weeks that it refused to ban Infowars on the grounds of protecting free speech on its platform.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said previously that Jones and InfoWars had not "violated our rules".

Vimeo reportedly determined that the content violated the company's trust and safety standards within 48 hours of the videos being posted. We know that's hard for many but the reason is simple: "he hasn't violated our rules", Dorsey explained.

It's unclear exactly how many episodes were ditched, although the vast majority of content created by Jones remains available to Spotify users.

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. The spokesperson added that Twitter will continue reviewing flagged content and "take action as appropriate".
