Alex Jones's follower count is surging on Twitter

Alex Jones and his InfoWars program have now been banned from YouTube, Facebook, iTunes and Spotify.  Nevertheless, Alex Jones still maintains a verified account on Twitter (much to the irritation of tech journalists).  Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey, has stated there are no immediate plans to ban Jones from the platform:
Jones is being treated well by Twitter in more ways than one.  According to SocialBlade, Jones has gained 42,592 new followers over the past 3 to 4 days.  Previously, Jones was gaining about 400 followers per day.

This jump makes sense.  If somebody wishes to "follow" Alex Jones on social media, Twitter is the only decent option remaining.  I wonder how long until he passes a million followers?

Social media has relatively humble roots, beginning as a novel method for people to combine online. It's now an integral part of how sites and businesses attract visitors; many sites consider social sites their next greatest source of visitors.

The past few decades have seen a true social networking revolution. Information sharing and content promotion are inclined to be more lively and more linked.
