US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account has been permanently suspended for ‘sharing COVID misinformation.’
The Georgia GOP rep’s account – @mtgreenee – was banned Sunday,
A Twitter spokesperson said: ‘We permanently suspended @mtrgreene for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.’
It is unclear what specific tweet ended up resulting in Greene’s final Twitter suspension,
The congresswoman retains access to the platform through an official account for her congressional office @RepMTG, which is largely if not entirely operated by staff. The account banned on Sunday was a personal Twitter account, similar to ones operated by many politicians.
Greene was previously suspended twice from the platform last year, in July and August, for similar violations of the company’s Covid-19 misinformation. Twitter forbids the sharing of any content they consider to be “false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm”, per its policies page.
