While accepting accounts like Jones' can often "sensationalise issues and spread unsubstantiated rumours", Dorsey sidestepped responsibility for allowing the broadcaster to do so, saying it was up to journalists to police his comments.
Infowars broke the app stores top 10 in the news category on Tuesday, edging out CNN, Fox News and The New York Times apps.
Dorsey's remarks, in a series of tweets late Tuesday, came after other major tech companies removed Jones' content for violating hate speech policies. Since the app lets users stream the same content Jones includes in his podcasts, why is it still available on Apple's own app distribution platform?
Dorsey's decision has not gone down well with some, however, with Reddit's former CEO suggesting it could lead to Twitter's demise.

Jones is facing five defamation suits, as NPR's Bill Chappell and Anastasia Tsioulcas reported, majority centering on comments about school shootings: "He has been accused of knowingly spreading false information about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting this year, the violence in Charlottesville, Va., last year and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012". The website said that they believed in free speech, and defended Jones in the past.
