Twitter Inc. permanently banned conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and the account of his InfoWars website, saying content Jones posted Wednesday violates the social network’s abuse and harassment policies.

“Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope,” the company tweeted. “We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations.”
