Mr Jones Goes to Washington

In a spectacular case of scoring an 'own goal', Alex Jones' trip to Washington resulted in a permanent Twitter ban. Ironically, he had traveled to DC to attend a bogus hearing on an alleged social media campaign against right-of-center figures. While in DC, Jones couldn't help but let his unhinged video personal bleed into meatspace: getting into Marco Rubio's face, heaping abuse on CNN reporter Oliver Darcy, and (perhaps the final straw) seeking out a confrontation with Twitter head Jack Dorsey.

The funny thing about Jones' banning is that it probably wouldn't have happened if he had stayed at home in Texas. His schtick is even less appealing in real life than it is on the internet.
