A message Tuesday afternoon from Twitter Safety stated that "tweets from Alex Jones and InfoWars are not now in violation of our Rules". "Moving forward, we all need more clarity on what their rules are and how they intend to enforce them". He may have escaped a ban for not violating Twitter's policies, but Dorsey says: "we'll enforce if he does". But it became a hot issue in the U.S. after companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter were accused of failing to stop alleged Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election. Dorsey suggested that although "accounts like Jones' can often sensationalize issues and spread unsubstantiated rumors", it is the responsibility of journalists to validate his claims "so people can form their own opinions".
The social network announced Tuesday that it would not ban Alex Jones or InfoWars from the site, noting that neither are now in violation of its rules.
Stephen Colbert ridiculed Alex Jones on "The Late Show" Tuesday night in wake of the controversial Infowars host being booted from a number of platforms, including Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and Apple.

Jones has made a living off of preaching what Colbert described as "vile conspiracy theories" for years, most notoriously maintaining that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was an elaborate hoax.
