Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been permanently banned from Twitter.

Twitter announced the news through a series of tweets on Friday night.

Jones and his company Info Wars are said to have breached Twitter's abusive behaviour policy.

Jones has previously been banned by Facebook for 30 days, and had a number of his videos pulled down by YouTube.
