Twitter bans Alex Jones from tweeting for seven days

And then he tweeted out the link from the (unverified) InfoWars Twitter account.

Twitter has suspended the U.S. conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for a week for breaking its rules against abusive behaviour.

Jones will still be able to browse Twitter and send direct messages to his followers, however he won't be able post publicly for seven days.

The same day, Jones posted a literal call to arms on Twitter's Periscope video platform, telling supporters to get their "battle rifles" ready, as Media Matters reported Tuesday.

Twitter said that Jones, whose Infowars shows have been banned by Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, Apple and others in recent weeks, had posted a new show which violated the company's rules prohibiting violent threats.

The final report into McNair's death, which is being compiled by a team of sports-medicine experts, is expected by September 15. In the ESPN report , sources alleged that the program created an environment based on fear and intimidation under Durkin.

The move comes just a week after Twitter's CEO claimed the site would not part ways with Jones, because he hadn't violated any company guidelines.

At the time, a Twitter spokesperson said the company concluded that of the more than a dozen tweets included in CNN's Thursday report, seven were found to have violated Twitter's rules.

A few weeks ago, InfoWars host Alex Jones was banned by almost every digital platform, including YouTube as well as Apple, Facebook, and Spotify, but Twitter didn't make a move in the same direction. Jones's apps still remain available via Apple's App Store and Google's Play store, however. "And we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified".

Jones has claimed that the Sandy Hook shooting was a "false flag" perpetrated by the government to take people's guns away.
