After YouTube pulled several of Alex Jones' videos two weeks ago for violating its hate speech policies, more and more services similarly removed content uploaded by him and his InfoWars network, culminating today in bans on Facebook and Apple's audio platforms. But amid the top media providers and social networks, one was notably silent: Twitter. As of today, the company's official position remains that Jones, InfoWars and associated accounts are not currently violating its rules, a Twitter spokesperson told Engadget.

Content posted by InfoWars on other social media networks isn't always published on Twitter, the spokesperson continued. Per its policies, however, if the company is made aware of content that violates its rules, they will take action -- and additionally, that they're always reviewing their rules.
