Even Pinterest and YouPorn have banned Jones and Infowars, but Twitter has decided against hopping on the bandwagon.

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". This followed the nearly simultaneous removal of his podcasts and pages from Apple, Facebook, and Spotify for hate-speech violations.

On the day after the trial results were released, the company's stock lost 92 percent of its value. Chris Collins' lawyers responded swiftly, insisting he will be "completely vindicated".

Murphy, who has represented CT in the US Senate since 2013, was among the vocal supporters of the controversial decision by several tech companies to suspend Jones from their platforms.

Dorsey appeared to take a swipe at the tech platforms that banned Jones and said Twitter refused to take "one-off actions to make us feel good" or make decisions that could ultimately fuel "new conspiracy theories".

Jones has described Monday's retaliation from an array of Internet giants as a "coordinated communist-style crackdown", but it followed months of criticism demanding the social media services do more to combat disinformation and hate discourse. 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. "This is what serves the public conversation best", Dorsey said.

Gates (46) admitted he had embezzled from other employers; he had volunteered the information once he began cooperating. Manafort was chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, and his longtime deputy was part of the campaign, too.

"Accounts like Jones' can often sensationalize issues and spread unsubstantiated rumors, so it's critical journalists document, validate, and refute such information directly so people can form their own opinions", said Dorsey.

A Twitter spokesman confirmed that InfoWars and associated accounts now comply with Twitter's rules. The other companies, including Facebook and Apple, cited harassment and hate speech as among the reasons they had deleted years of content from Jones, who responded by telling The Washington Post that the First Amendment was in danger.

Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars' six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps, BuzzFeed News has learned. Since he's been banned from all manner of social media platform, he's introducing a new medium to release his podcast, Brain Fight with Tuck Buckford.
