Twitter announced that it has permanently suspended Alex Jones and Infowars from both Twitter and Periscope for violating its “abusive behavior policy.”
I’m actually not okay with this and you shouldn’t be either. Twitter acts like they don’t have a MUTE button & we’re all 4-yr-olds who need to be protected from meanies. This is a disturbing precedent and we should all be paying attention https://t.co/GB11m1MFsQ

Don’t really care for Alex Jones, but the fact that for profit corporations are now the arbiters of free speech is troubling.

Twitter says they simply won’t tolerate intolerant people. And abuse is only permitted for people on the political left.

The beginning of the end folks. This is what has been slowly progressing for decades. Control of your freedom of speech
