Twitter Suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Account

Rep. Marjorie Taylore Greene’s Twitter account has been suspended for violating its policy against posting misleading information related to the coronavirus pandemic. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to the Post that Greene’s personal account would be placed in “read-only mode” for 12 hours, presumably meaning her followers can view her previous tweets but she is unable to make any new posts. This suspension should expire on Tuesday morning.
Twitter’s coronavirus vaccine misinformation policy was unveiled in March and states that 12-hour suspensions are given to uses that have violated its policy on more than two or three occasions. A fourth violation results in a week’s suspension while a fifth strike can lead to a permanent account ban.
In addition to the suspension Twitter is monitoring posts about covid and has labeled two of Green’s posts. Her first post talking about the link between vaccinations and infections in the UK
The Second tweet stating the vaccine should not be forced on people:
Twitter marked both tweets as “misleading” and invited users to access information about the safety of the vaccines. Greene has been repeatedly suspended from Twitter for various reasons.

The social media giant suspended Greene’s Twitter account for 12 hours after discussing election fraud during the 2020 elections.
“The account referenced has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy,” a Twitter spokesperson said Sunday.
Some of her tweets coming from a thread about election integrity surrounding Georgia’s elections earned labels from Twitter, claiming, “This claim about election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”

Greene called for social media giants to stop censoring conservative speech on the Internet.
