Twitter says it has removed accounts linked to conspiracy-monger Alex Jones and Infowars.
A Twitter spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the accounts had been removed. There was no additional comment from the company.
Twitter permanently suspended realalexjones and infowars from Twitter and Periscope in early September. It said it based that action in reports of tweets and videos that violated its policy against abusive behavior.
The company said it would continue to evaluate reports regarding other accounts potentially associated with realalexjones or infowars and would take action if it finds content that violates its rules or if other accounts are used to try to circumvent their ban.
Other tech companies, including PayPal, YouTube, Apple and Spotify, have limited or banned Jones' activities on their sites.
