Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify ban racial-hate-stirrer Alex Jones of InfoWars – only Twitter doesn’t

A Facebook spokesperson says the ban is “for glorifying violence …& using dehumanising language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants.”

This is good. They are trying.

Twitter is the only mainstream social media platform not to ban him. CEO Jack Dorsey explains why : “If we succumb and simply react to outside pressure, rather than straightforward principles we enforce (and evolve) impartially regardless of political viewpoints, we become a service that’s constructed by our personal views that can swing in any direction. That’s not us.”
