The app launched in June and users can stream live shows and read stories from his Infowars website, where he also sells merchandise, including t-shirts, books, supplements and survivalist gear.
Tuesday, Dorsey said neither Jones nor his InfoWars account will be removed. The four companies stated that Jones' disparaging comments about Muslims, immigrants, members of the LGBT community, and several other groups of people violate the hate speech clauses in their respective terms-of-service agreements. It was the first major company to sanction the broadcaster in its entirety as pressure has mounted on content sharing platforms in recent months to clampdown on Jones and Infowars. In a side swipe at the suggestion that numerous bans that have been slapped on Jones and Infowars in recent days have been kneejerk reactions, he adds: "we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified".
Dorsey said in his posts that "we've been bad at explaining our decisions in the past". Sometimes these expressions may be offensive, controversial, and/or bigoted.
"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". Both sites had already temporarily limited his publishing power, and Spotify showed itself ready to act against Jones when it removed some of his podcasts last week.

"If you come out before the midterms and make the censorship the big issue of them trying to steal the election".
The companies that punished Jones said they did so because he violated their policies on hate speech.
