Greene which has one of the largest social media followings of any Republican member of Congress with over 465,000 followers was banned on Twitter over the New Year weekend.
While every one was preoccupied with the New Years celebrations big tech was moving to silence the voice of a sitting member of congress.
Andrew Torba founder and CEO of Gab said, “Thankfully Congresswoman Greene was smarter than many of her colleagues because she got on Gab over a year ago and built up a tremendous following of hundreds of thousands of people,”
Some would say this type of censorship sets a dangerous precedent for politicians with differing views other than those of a big tech CEO or company. Greene responded to the ban by saying, “Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene said in a statement responding to the ban. “That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
