On Thursday, Twitter revealed that it permanently banned conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and InfoWars. They cited a violation of the company’s abusive behavior policy for the ban.

In a series of tweets, Twitter explained, “We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations.”

They continued, “As we continue to increase transparency around our rules and enforcement actions, we wanted to be open about this action given the broad interest in this case.”

The company added they will “continue to evaluate reports” and “will take action” if more content violates their rules.

The ban comes after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testified during a congressional hearing where he addressed online election meddling.
