After Facebook, YouTube, and others ban him, Alex Jones directs supporters to Tumblr

Blog ››› ››› TIMOTHY JOHNSON

After being banned by Facebook, YouTube, and other social media platforms and websites for violating community guidelines, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is now using Tumblr to promote his Infowars outlet.

Infowars drew attention to the Tumblr account on Twitter -- one of the only other major platforms Jones has not been banned from -- with a tweet that said, “They can take our Facebook, Apple, Spotify, Tunein, Youtube, Stitcher, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Flickr, Vimeo, Sprout, MailChimp & Disqus but they'll never take our...........Tumblr!”:

The tweet linked to Jones’ Tumblr page. The page made its first post in 2012, but it has posted only sporadically over the past six years. On August 13, the account began repeatedly posting content after being dormant for over a year.

Jones is using his Tumblr account to encourage readers to watch his show on Periscope and to download the Infowars app:

Media Matters has asked Tumblr for a comment on Jones’ use of its platform and will update this post if we receive a response.
