Twitter suspends Alex Jones for one week
Twitter is blocking the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from posting to its platform for a week. The New York Times reported Mr Jones had tweeted a link to a video in which he called on his followers to ready their "Battle rifles". Mr Jones has previously been widely criticised for repeating claims that the 9/11 attacks in New York were staged by the US government. Apple's iTunes, Facebook and YouTube removed podcasts and other content by Mr Jones and InfoWars from their services last week. Among the last messages Mr Jones posted before the ban came into effect was a claim that InfoWars' main site had been forced offline by a cyber-attack.
