Jones had attended complained that social media sites including facebook, YouTube and Twitter had censored him and banned or removed his content. During the break he approached Rubio while he was addressing reporters and broke into Rubio’s comments repeatedly.
Rubio tried to ignore him until Jones called him a “frat boy” and a “snake.” Rubio laughed him off saying he didn’t know who he was and Jones made physical contact apparently touching him on the shoulder.
“Don’t touch me again, man. I’m asking you not to touch me,” Rubio said.
“Well, sure, I just patted you nicely,” Jones said.
“I know, but I don’t want to be touched,” Rubio said. “I don’t know who you are.”
Jones talked over him, saying he wanted him to be arrested, and Rubio said he didn’t know who Jones was.
“You’re not going to get arrested, man. You’re not going to get arrested; I’ll take care of you myself,” Rubio said.
Much as I enjoyed watching Marco Rubio send Alex Jones into a rage, in a fight between them, I’m rooting for a sinkhole. pic.twitter.com/O1t9NnR7Ji

Alex Jones Twitter Ban
On 6th September 2018 Twitter permanently suspended Alex Jnes and his Inforwars website accounts. Twitter said that the ban was as a result of ‘new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the account’s past violations’.
‘not typically comment on enforcement actions…against individual accounts but was open about this action given the broad interest in this case.’ It added.
In August Twitter came under criticism when it refused to ban InfoWars and Alex Jones accounts despite other online platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Apple and Spotify deleting his content.
Jack Dorsey, Twitter Ceo, said at the time he had not violated the Twitter’s rules but promised to suspend them if they ever did so.
