  • Twitter boss admits he was wrong to suggest journalists police site

The remarks follow less than a day after a Twitter executive told CNN that such messages violating the company's policies had not occurred, arguing that "we would have taken action" to delete them.

Before the story published, Del Harvey, Twitter vice president for trust and safety, wrote in an email to employees that if any content like what got Jones banned elsewhere had appeared on Twitter, it would result in his suspension on their site as well.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said previously that Jones and InfoWars had not "violated our rules".

Those videos were not the only content CNN found in its review of Jones' and Infowars' Twitter accounts that suggest the social media platform's statements about its stance are incorrect, or that its rules are not being applied to Jones and Infowars.

A Twitter spokesperson said the company investigated a report by CNN that InfoWars and Jones tweets violated its terms of service, and found seven tweets that were not within regulations.

Infowars did not immediately return a Daily Dot request for comment asking who had deleted the tweets and why. While Twitter required those tweets be deleted, the company can not use them as grounds to take further action against the accounts, the spokesperson said. Some recent tweets did violate current rules.

Twitter is one of the only remaining major social media platforms that hasn't banned Jones or the InfoWars account. After his reporting calling out numerous tweets from Jones, the tweets were all taken down (Twitter denied anyone from the company did so).

The other five tweets occurred before a set of bolstered Twitter rules were put into place in December 2017.

Among the tweets, CNN discovered were Sandy Hook conspiracy theories and tweets attacking Parkland shooting survivors.

After CNN's report, those 20 tweets were removed. The network should be more vigilant in enforcing its own rules and acknowledging where it's made mistakes in the past.

Other technology giants, including Apple, Spotify, YouTube and Facebook had removed profiles, pages and accounts linked to Jones and Infowars, each citing their individual rules around not tolerating hate speech as the reasoning behind their decision.
