According to the CNN broadcaster, the decision was taken after the information related to InfoWars was posted on a number of microblogs, despite the permanent ban placed on Jones and his media outlet by Twitter in September.
In August, Twitter put Jones' account in a read-only mode over the latter's violation of the social media platform's policy on abuse and then decided to permanently ban the conspiracy theorist and his outlet from the social platform in September. In addition, content released by Jones as well as his accounts were removed by such tech giants as Apple, Google and YouTube. Jones viewed the step as censorship and alleged being persecuted by social networks.
Jones has become known for his largely discredited conspiracy theories, including those about the events of 9/11 and the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
