For Violating Online Rules Twitter Suspends US Radio Show Host Alex Jones Account

Other social media giants have permanently removed accounts linked to Mr Jones and Infowars which were deemed to have broken their...

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

Jones' account has been placed in a read-only mode for seven days, Twitter confirmed Tuesday, meaning he can still browse Twitter posts, but he can't interact with other users by tweeting or retweeting or liking other posts.

Koepka rises to world No.2, Tiger and Scott soar
Tiger Woods last won a major golf title in June 2008, when he beat Rocco Mediate in a playoff at Torrey Pines to win the US Open. He settled for a 4-under 66 and a two-shot lead over Adam Scott going into the final round of the final major of the year.

CNET first reported that Jones has to delete an offending tweet, although it was unclear which tweet has been singled out.

A Twitter spokesperson said the action was taken for tweets containing a video that was in violation of the company's rules on abusive behaviour and inciting violence.

But Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended his company's decision last week not to ban Jones, saying he did not break any rules. 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".
