Twitter permanently bans Alex Jones, Infowars citing abuse

The suspension came about following a Periscope video of Jones verbally harassing a reporter named Oliver Darcy. Political activist Cassandra Fairbanks recorded the exchange.

Shortly after the encounter, Jones did a Rubio impression, showing why he should absolutely be taken seriously by elected officials when he harasses them during press events. Rubio asked, using the term for impromptu Q&A sessions with reporters.

Other tech companies have also put a temporary block on Jones' accounts, including Facebook. A reporter in the gaggle mentioned InfoWars. "I'm asking you not to touch me". I know cocktail shrimp with more backbone than him. Jones did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Who are you? Who is this guy?" Who is this guy?

The man was conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has fallen foul of several social media companies for violating their community standards, although Rubio said he did not know who he was. "You're a snake", shot back Jones, touching the senator's shoulder to keep his attention. For almost an hour, he inveighed against Democrats and mainstream news outlets that he said were slandering him, sweating through his blue oxford shirt. Marco Rubio tussled with Jones after Jones confronted and touched him outside a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.

Jones says his shows, which are broadcast on radio, YouTube and other platforms, reach at least 70 million people a week. "I'll take care of you myself", warned Rubio, as Jones mocked him. "You're going to beat me up? You want me to get arrested". "Rubio just threatened to physically fight me".

Jones laughed off the idea that Rubio was unfamiliar with him, and with Infowars, the site he heads up, and called Rubio "little frat boy", and "a gangster thug".

"He's saying I don't exist", Jones said.

Things only degenerated further from there, with Rubio soon walking away and telling the reporters they could feel free to interview "this clown".
