Twitter Permanently Bans Alex Jones After New Violations

Sen. Marco Rubio got into a spat with personality Alex Jones on Wednesday

"You're not gonna get arrested", Rubio told him. "Thank God Trump is".

Jones had about 900,000 followers on Twitter and Infowars had about 430,000.

Following the proceedings, Jones stood outside heckling Rubio as he interviewed with the press. "I'll handle you myself".

"I don't know who you are, man", Rubio said. In response, Watson told Breitbart News, "The fact that Alex Jones has been banned for "targeted harassment" for a video in which he had a forthright but ultimately peaceful exchange of views with a CNN reporter is ludicrous".

At this point Jones touched Rubio on the shoulder, in an apparent attempt to keep the senator's attention.

"Oh, he'll beat me up", Jones said in a surprised tone.

The senator attempted to ignore Jones, telling him he didn't know who he was and calling him a "dumbass".

Apple's new 6.5-inch handset could be called the 'iPhone XS Max'
The online retailer also has some decent deals on the iPhone 8 with prices starting from £620 for the Space Grey model. We don't get a glimpse at the front where it's expected there will be a 6.1-inch LCD with a notch for Face ID 1.0.

Jones railed on the government, media, and social media companies for more than 40 minutes in the hallway as the hearing began, and later took a seat in the hearing room. "You want me to get arrested".

He was on the hill attending a Senate hearing in which Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey are testifying about foreign influences on social media practices.

Jones and his company Info Wars are said to have breached Twitter's abusive behaviour policy.

"I wonder why Rubio got so mad at me and threatened me physically", Jones said. "The Democrats are raping the Republicans. I don't really read your website".

Last month, Twitter gave Jones a small punishment for his inflammatory behavior on the platform-a one-week suspension that prevented Jones from tweeting or retweeting from his personal account. This came after he was previously banned by Apple, Youtube, and Facebook - which caused traffic to his content to be cut in half. Jones kept jawing at him until Rubio took the bait, blurting out. Jones asked. "I didn't say that", Rubio replied.

Rubio eventually walked away, dismissing Jones as a "clown".

Twitter's first punishment was minor compared to the repercussions that Jones and InfoWars faced from other tech companies just days before.
