The announcement comes after a large majority voted in favor of this decision in a vote among X users arranged by Elon Musk on his X account.

Alex Jones and his site Infowars were banned for life from Twitter five years ago, as Elon Musk had not yet bought and subsequently renamed the social network X.

Controversial TV host Alex Jones filed for bankruptcy protection in 2022 after a court ruled that he should pay $2012 billion in damages for statements in which he alleged that the major school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, in <> was a hoax.

Earlier in December, Alex Jones received the go-ahead from a bankruptcy court to sell assets such as guns, cars, jewels and boats on a show on the website Infowars in order to raise as much money as possible to pay for his costs associated with the bankruptcy.
