Twitter permanently suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account over COVID-19 misinformation

Twitter has for all time suspended Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s own record for over and over abusing the stage’s standards on COVID-19 falsehood, as indicated in a report by CNN. Since the boycott just influences Greene’s own Twitter account, @mtgreenee, she can in any case access and tweet from her legislative record, @RepMTG.

In an assertion to The Verge, Twitter representative Katie Rosborough clarifies that the stage “for all time suspended” Greene’s record “for rehashed infringement” of the stage’s COVID-19 arrangements. “We’ve been certain that, per our strike framework for this arrangement, we will forever suspend represents rehashed infringement of the approach,” she adds.

Twitter carried out a five-strike framework for COVID-19 falsehood last year

Twitter carried out a five-strike framework in March 2021, which puts a lock on clients’ records assuming that they post tweets containing deception about COVID-19 — the more strikes a client gathers, the more they’re briefly banned from their record. Assuming that a client gets five strikes, in any case, their record gets for all time suspended. Twitter didn’t affirm which tweet was Greene’s last strike.

Greene responded to the situation in a post on Telegram and Facebook. “Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene states. “Social media platforms can’t stop the truth from being spread far and wide.” She also claims she was suspended for tweeting out data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a database that stores information about potential adverse reactions to vaccines — including the COVID-19 vaccines.

Last year, Greene was suspended from Twitter several times for violating the platform’s policies. Her account was temporarily banned for violating Twitter’s civic integrity policy, and was later suspended on two separate occasions after tweeting misleading information about COVID-19.
