I have no idea what took these people so long to kick this asshole off of their social media platform.
I mean seriously, what public good does Alex Jones perform?

Twitter has permanently banned the accounts of right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones and Info Wars for violating the company’s abusive behavior policies, the company said Thursday.
The ban appears to be related to a heated exchange between Jones and a CNN reporter Wednesday, which Jones live-streamed on the Twitter-owned video service Periscope. Jones ranted at the reporter, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, following back-to-back congressional hearings where Dorsey addressed online election interference, as well as accusations of political bias and conservative censorship on the platform.
“We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations,” the company said in a series of tweets. “We wanted to be open about this action given the broad interest in this case.”
Here, by the way, is the confrontation that broke the Twitter camel’s back.
I did not really want to post it because it is from the Info Wars YouTube account, but it seemed somewhat newsworthy just to give some context here.
Anyhow, I think we are just about hearing from Alex Jones, as there are only a few places where he can be found these days, and it is likely that they will be kicking his ass to the curb soon as well.
I know, what a shame, right?
