Dorsey also appeared to reference the decisions by other big tech firms in recent days to shut down Jones and Infowars. "Moving forward, we all need more clarity on what their rules are and how they intend to enforce them. We'll enforce if he does", he said.

According to Colbert, Pinterest has even pulled Jones's pages ("Bad news if you were planning an autumn wedding with the theme "gay frog chemtrails'", Colbert said) leaving Twitter as the sole social media site giving Jones a platform". On his show, InfoWars, he peddles conspiracy theories, ranging from claiming the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in 2012 was staged by the government to stating the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack was an "inside job".
Colbert then brought back a Jones-like character called Tuck Buckford that he debuted earlier this year to parody Jones and InfoWars.
