Until yesterday, products like the & # 39; Silver Bullet & # 39; and & # 39; Survival Shield X-2 Nascent Iodine & # 39; appeared on the product list & # 39; Amazon Choice & # 39;, writes Fast Company.

This suggests that the products met the requirement of being highly qualified with buyers, at a good price and available to ship immediately.

But even though receiving mainly positive reviews and not altering the shipping policy, the InfoWars brand products have lost their "Option" status.

The retailer's screenshots confirm that Amazon has dropped the label in silence.

It's not clear how Amazon determines which products are worthy of their stamp & # 39; Amazon Choice & # 39;.

Some believe that the decision is automatic and is made by algorithms that monitor reviews and comments from buyers, while others believe that the retailer uses human moderators to decide which brands to back up.

MailOnline has contacted Amazon to receive comments.

Activists had previously pressured retailers to remove InfoWars products; however, the Seattle-based company had not made any changes to change its policy.

Removal of the & # 39; Choice & # 39; It follows a large number of bans on technology firms based in Silicon Valley, including Apple, Spotify, Facebook and Google.

After the blocks, the InfoWars application has seen an increase in popularity.

The free application, which allows people to listen to Alex Jones' radio show live, is climbing up the lists of both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Currently occupies the ninth place in the Google ranking of the main applications of news and magazines. InfoWars is also the fourth most downloaded free news application in the App Store.

How many people want to hear from Alex Jones?

Amazon seems to have stopped recommending products from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

This occurs a few days after Apple, YouTube, Spotify and Facebook announced blocks of accounts and content of the conspiracy theorist, citing violations of hate politics.

Apple has eliminated the podcast but has allowed the application to remain in the App Store.

Similarly, although the channel has been removed from YouTube, it is still in the Google Android app store.

However, it seems that after the controversy, InfoWars fans are still eager to hear from Jones.

They are still flocking to the application, which is currently the fourth most downloaded free news application in the App Store.

Before it was banned from being published on multiple platforms, it was not in the top ten.

It is currently number nine on the Google graph of the main news and magazine applications.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Twitter would not block Jones from its social network, despite the recent bans on competitors Apple, YouTube and Facebook.

A spokesman said that the accounts managed by the podcast host and its media platform InfoWars will be saved from the ban since they have not violated Twitter's policies.

Users of the microblogging site criticized the decision, arguing that Twitter is "protecting the hatred, violence and fanaticism" of Jones and its associated accounts.

The 44-year-old man saw his personal and InfoWars content removed from a series of major Internet sites in a series of unprecedented bans this week.

WHO IS ALEX JONES?

Alex Jones is a controversial radio and podcast presenter based in Austin, Texas.

Jones says his "InfoWars" programs, which are broadcast by radio, YouTube and other platforms, reach at least 70 million people a week.

Among other claims, he has described the massive shooting of Sandy Hook Elementary School 2012 as a hoax.

He was sued for defamation by the families of some of the children killed in that attack, which left 20 children and six adults dead.

Now he admits that the shooting took place, but he says that his demands were for freedom of expression. He has sought to dismiss the claim.

Jones has also claimed that the attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington were organized by the United States government.

While it began to transmit its shows in 1999, the profile of Jones has extended from the extreme right in the last years.

While running for president in 2015, Donald Trump told Jones that his reputation was "incredible."

Following requests for similar restrictions on Twitter, a spokesperson for the site revealed that Jones and her affiliate accounts would remain active.

They told MailOnline that InfoWars and its associated accounts were not violating Twitter rules.

The content published by InfoWars on other social networking sites is often not published on Twitter, they added.

His policies on hate speech claim that he does not tolerate users who harass, intimidate or use fear to silence other users of social networks.

Twitter users who violate these rules may find deleted content, or their access to the suspended account, according to the social network.

But the site has been criticized in recent months for the way it handles accounts that publish abusive and threatening tweets, particularly those based on gender and religion, although last year it said it would take tough action against the abusive content.

The site suspended the accounts of several leaders of the far-right group Britain First in December for breaking its rules on hate speech.

He also promoted the theory that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was faked.

The shooting left 26 children and adults dead in a Connecticut elementary school.

Jones currently faces five lawsuits, including three headed by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, which Jones said was a deception led by leftist forces to promote gun control.

Several platforms have recently suspended or removed content posted by Jones and pages linked to Inforwars for violating hate content policies.

Facebook announced on Monday that it deleted four pages belonging to Jones for publishing content that violated its policies on hate speech and violence.

It came just hours after Apple revealed that it deleted the entire iTunes library for five of the six podcasts of Jones' Infowars, including the shows & # 39; War Room & # 39; and the newspaper & # 39; The Alex Jones Show & # 39 ;.

Shortly after Facebook and Apple took action, YouTube eliminated The Alex Jones Channel, which has about 2.5 million subscribers.

Spotify also announced on Monday that it would take additional measures against Jones, eliminating all episodes of the Alex Jones Show from the broadcast site.

Before this, Spotify had only been rid of specific episodes of the program, leaving most of the library on its platform.

Even the pornographic website YouPorn announced yesterday that it will remove any video that shows Jones from its site.

Often, people post non-pornographic content on pornographic websites due to their relatively relaxed copyright rules.

In recent weeks, Facebook and other technology giants have faced repeated reactions against their inaction against the American conspiracy theorist.

However, YouTube, Facebook and Apple opted to take radical action against Jones on the same day, effectively removing their content from their platforms.

An ad on the channel Alex Jones said the account had been "canceled for violating the YouTube community guidelines."

"All users agree to abide by our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines when they sign up to use YouTube," a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.

"When users repeatedly violate these policies, such as our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms that prohibit our coercive measures, we finalize their accounts."

YouTube had released four videos submitted by Jones last month for violating his policies on hate speech and danger to children.

The firm realized that Jones continued to violate its policies and took additional measures as a result.

The initial actions of YouTube provoked similar movements of Spotify, Facebook and Apple.

Apple announced its decision on Sunday night. Only one program provided by InfoWars, & # 39; RealNews with David Knight & # 39; It remained on Apple's platforms at the time of publication.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, Apple confirmed that it also eliminated Jones' podcast for violating its guidelines on hate speech.

Only a few hours later, Facebook said it had "unpublished" & # 39; the Alex Jones Channel page, the Alex Jones page, the Infowars page and the Infowars night news page.

Many have pointed out that the timing of Facebook's ban was peculiar, with the signing of social media posting the ad on its site at around 3 a.m. (Pacific Time), according to The Guardian.

It marks an important face for Facebook, which said in recent weeks that it refused to ban Infowars with the argument of protecting freedom of expression on its platform.

Facebook in July forbade Jones to personally post on the platform for 30 days and deleted four videos for violating its rules.

At that time, Facebook had warned that it would ban Jones and Infowars accounts if they continue to post content that violates company standards.

"As a result of the reports we received last week, we eliminated four videos on four Facebook pages for violating our policies of intimidation and hate speech," Facebook wrote in a blog post.

"Since then, we have been informed of more content from the same pages: after its review, we have removed it to glorify the violence, which violates our policy of graphic violence, and uses a dehumanizing language to describe transgender, Muslim and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies. "

Facebook added that although many have criticized Infowars for publishing false news on the site, such as the conspiracy theories related to September 11 and the Sandy Hook shooting, the actions it took were not related to that.

While Jones and Infowars technically can not access the site, Facebook said they still have the right to appeal. the decision of the company.

If neither party appeals or your appeal fails, Facebook will remove the pages indefinitely.

Facebook he said in a tweet last month that banning the Infowars pages would be contrary to the basic principles of freedom of expression after a CNN reporter asked him why the company had allowed Infowars, which had more than 900,000 followers, to continue operating on its site .

In July, YouTube slapped Jones' channel with a "community attack" and prevented him from broadcasting live on the site for 90 days.

Spotify, a music and podcasting company, did the same thing last week when it eliminated some specific episodes of Jones' shows.

It is not clear exactly how many episodes were abandoned, although the vast majority of the content created by Jones is still available to Spotify users.

& # 39; Spotify can confirm that you have deleted specific episodes of the podcast & # 39; The Alex Jones Show for violating our hate content policy, a spokesman said Sunday night.

"We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that our community scores."
