said in his posts that "we've been awful at explaining our decisions in the past".

Colbert was referring to the news that tech companies and social media sites have chose to either ban or pull content from Infowars and Jones from their sites.


Jones' Facebook account has also been suspended for 30 days but he still has a "verified" Twitter account.

The terms for podcasts and apps vary in language, but Apple has not said why it hasn't pulled Infowars Official from the App Store.

"We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with different opinions".

Dorsey admitted that Twitter has done a bad job of explaining their reasoning in the past but said the company was working on effectively improving communication with the general public.

The document reads: "Twitter is reflective of real conversations happening in the world and that sometimes includes perspectives that may be offensive, controversial, and/or bigoted".


WikiLeaks now fears it could be targeted next if political pressure leads to Silicon Valley censorship.

Jones earlier this week responded to the shutdowns of his accounts by slamming social media platform providers as "lying bullies".

He points out, however, that Alex Jones is not being given a free ride.

We didn't suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday. "We're fixing that", Dorsey said.
