Twitter Speaks Out about Not Banning Alex Jones


Trump supporters and conservative commentators Diamond and Silk received an apology from Facebook earlier this year. In the apology, Facebook admitted to “mishandling communications” with the pro-Trump women. Finally, PragerU, a right-leaning platform, slapped Google and YouTube with a lawsuit in October, alleging that the sites engaged in illegal censorship and discrimination against free speech.

The banning of Jones has moreover fueled concerns from some conservatives that they are facing systemic censorship on popular social media outlets.
