New York (CNN Business)Twitter on Monday removed more than a dozen accounts affiliated with the fringe right-wing media organization InfoWars, a company spokesperson told CNN.
Jones and InfoWars were permanently suspended from Twitter after multiple posts were found to violate the company’s abusive behavior policy. When Twitter suspended Jones and InfoWars, the company said accounts that attempted to help Jones and InfoWars get around the ban would also be removed.
In addition to the 18 accounts suspended on Monday, the Twitter spokesperson said the company had previously suspended five other accounts that tried to help Jones and InfoWars get around the ban.
The suspensions came just days after The Daily Beast reported accounts affiliated with InfoWars were continuing to disseminate its content.
An InfoWars spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.
