All eyes were on Twitter Monday after Apple, Facebook, Spotify and Pinterest deleted significant amounts of  InfoWars and related content from conspiracy kingpin, Alex Jones.

With events unfolding swiftly, Twitter remained the only major social media platform still freely hosting Jones’ content as of Monday afternoon. (Jones also still remains live on Pinterest)

“China pulls the strings of big tech now. Choose a side. Soros is proud of you,” Jones told TheWrap via text.

Twitter, however, has no plans to remove Jones from its platform. A person with direct knowledge of how Twitter is handling the situation said InfoWars is not currently in violation of the company’s policies.

Pressure, however, began to build almost immediately, with professional Jones watchers and haters publicly asking what Twitter and its chief Jack Dorsey would do about InfoWars.
