No more hate of speech, says Twitter with the suspension of 18 more accounts that were affiliated with Infowars.

In an interview with CNN Today, the company’s official spokesperson said: “Twitter has removed more than dozens of Infowars-related accounts from its platform, which were affiliated with far-right websites, known for spreading hate-speech, misinformation and conspiracy theories.”

“The removals were in addition to five Infowars affiliated accounts that had been already been banned,” It added.

Last Month, Twitter permanently suspended the accounts of Alex Jones and Infowars for promoting hatred and discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions, including ones claiming the Sandy Hook and Parkland school shootings were faked.

The suspension has come a week after the Daily Beast reported that “Infowars however, has been using the affiliated accounts to promote its contents, which includes the accounts of InfoWars “Real News” show, The Infowars store(which sells Jones line of dietary supplements) and “News Wars” which promoted videos of Infowars.”
