Alex Jones is known as a right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist who hosts The Alex Jones Show on the radio and runs InfoWars.com, a website devoted to conspiracy theories. Jones’ radio show has about two million listeners each week, while his website InfoWars has around ten million monthly visitors.

Jones is well-known for his conspiracy theories about tragedies, like the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting when he claimed that “no one” died. He has also accused the US government for being involved with the 9/11 terror attack and the Oklahoma City bombing. In a Rolling Stones interview, he was called a “multiplatform prophet of paranoia who sees diabolical plots in every turn of the news cycle.”

In July of 2018, large media platforms including Facebook and YouTube deleted all InfoWars’ content from their channels citing “hate speech.” Apple also removed all his podcasts from their libraries. A few months later in September, Twitter permanently suspended Jones and InfoWars for abusive behavior.

Twitter says Jones won’t be able to create new accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones because he posted a video that is in violation of the company’s policy against “abusive behavior.” The video Twitter is referring to shows Jones shouting at CNN journalist Oliver Darcy for 10 minutes during congressional hearings about social media, according to the New York Post.

Jones had 900,000 followers on Twitter and InfoWars had 430,000.
