Vimeo removes Infowars content

A week ago, Jones was banned from multiple social media platforms, including Facebook, iTunes, Spotify and YouTube, all of which cited similar terms of service violations.

According to Business Insider, new videos uploaded Thursday and Friday violated the site's Terms of Service for "discriminatory and hateful content".

After Vimeo banned InfoWars, they reportedly notified Jones and gave him a refund, adding, "We do not want to profit from content of this nature in any way".

On August 7, Jones, speaking on the Real.Video platform, took issue with his bans, which he called a "concerted plan to erase my electronic identity".

Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' content has been removed from Vimeo, The Hill reports.

Dorsey will talk with NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt about InfoWars in an interview scheduled to air Wednesday night.

Twitter is the only major social media site that still allows Alex Jones to post his racist conspiracy theories and threats of violence, and the company just had a rough week because of it.

Users of the microblogging site have criticised the decision, arguing that Twitter is "protecting the hate, violence and bigotry" of Jones and his associated accounts.

In a report by the New York Times is says Facebook's founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was personally engaged in the decision to ban Jones and his Facebook pages. The tweets were deleted by the InfoWars staff, according to Jones, as a way to "take the super high road". Twitter, on the other hand, is yet to remove Jones or InfoWars from its platform.

Jones now faces five lawsuits, including three fronted by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre - which Jones claimed was a hoax run by left-wing forces to promote gun control. Following a CNN investigation that claimed Jones has actually violated the rules numerous times, a Twitter spokesperson said seven of Jones' tweets out of the more than a dozen CNN presented did, in fact, violate Twitter's rules, CNN reported.
