After a long period of public pressure, multiple platforms and outlets such as YouTube and Spotify, have removed Infowars and Alex Jones content from their respective platforms. The other companies, including Facebook and Apple, cited harassment and hate speech as among the reasons they had deleted years of content from Jones, who responded by telling The Washington Post that the First Amendment was in danger. Dorsey suggested that although "accounts like Jones' can often sensationalize issues and spread unsubstantiated rumors", it is the responsibility of journalists to validate his claims "so people can form their own opinions".

"While we welcome everyone to express themselves on our service, we prohibit targeted behaviour that harasses, threatens, or uses fear to silence the voices of others".
Facebook blocked four of Jones's pages on Monday morning, followed by YouTube's decision to delete his Infowars page, which boasted 2.4 million followers.
