But then, as is often the case on Twitter, a movement to get Jones off Twitter sprung into action.
Twitter users responded to the suspension with a collective "Seriously?" However, though Jones' account was suspended over the video, it was still viewable on Twitter-owned Periscope through InfoWars' account. There are three quick & easy ways.
He was temporarily barred from tweeting yesterday for sharing a live video stream in which viewers were encouraged to take up "battle rifles" against the media.
Holt brought up the above tweet from Trump and asked, "Would that violate your terms of service?"
During this time Jones can not sent tweets or retweets. In the meantime, Jones simply moved over to his InfoWars account, where he proceeded to push his risky, completely unhinged conspiracy theories, like his current favorite about special prosecutor Robert Mueller abusing children.
But finally, late Tuesday night, Twitter appears to have handed Jones literally the lightest form of punishment available.
A Twitter spokesman confirmed the account has limited functionality.
Dorsey told The Hill that Twitter decided not to take action over the earlier tweets because they hadn't been flagged at the time.
Despite the Twitter suspension Wednesday, Jones' video remained on Periscope.
Twitter "suspending" Jones for just seven days is a slap on the wrist.
