Senior Research Fellow, Dr Ansgar Koene talks to Radio Sputnik about platforms and freedom of speech

‘Platforms are eager to separate themselves from their content’

Twitter will not suspend controversial radio host and blogger Alex Jones of Infowars.

The social network’s CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted that his posts did not violate any rules.

Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify have either banned or punished the conspiracy theorist .

According to Spotify, Infowars – quote – “expressly and principally promotes, advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual based on characteristics.”

Radio Sputnik discussed this with Dr Ansgar Koene, Senior Research Fellow at the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute at the University of Nottingham.
