Jones described his current troubles with tech companies as "like a James Bond movie" in a video posted to the InfoWars Twitter account around 5PM AEST yesterday.

Jones won't be able to tweet or retweet from his personal account for seven days, though he will be able to browse Twitter.

He was also booted off Spotify and Facebook, with the former stating that it had taken action "due to repeated violations of Spotify's prohibited content policies". Twitter would have required those tweets to be deleted, if they were to have remained up. One of the key issues surrounded Alex Jones, the host of Infowars, who was recently purged from almost every major social media website - except Twitter. Twitter's temporary ban of Jones was first reported by CNET. In the process, he used language more appropriate for dealing with a child who took a cookie without permission than a grown man with a history of promoting conspiracy theories, such as his false claim that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in CT was a hoax. Jones is being sued for defamation related to the claim. "We don't want any of our policies or enforcement or products to make decisions based on viewpoints and ideologies".
