Twitter permanently suspended the personal account of GOP firebrand Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Sunday.
Twitter explained that the decision was made because of their policy on COVID-19 misinformation, which uses a “warning” system. The first few strikes result in an account lockout for 12 hours, but the last 5 can result in a permanent suspension.
A Twitter spokesperson told Daily Dot, “We’ve permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. clearly…we will permanently suspend the account for repeated policy violations.”
“Twitter is an enemy of America and cannot handle the truth,” Greene said in a statement reacting to the suspension. “They cannot successfully complete a Communist revolution when everyone tells the truth.”
The topic that led to the permanent suspension was the comparison between “Before Covid” and “After Covid.” The tweets are made claim ownership like “If you’re white, you’re likely to eventually get a life-saving monoclonal antibody.”
Many Twitter users celebrated the news.
Greene still has access to her official Twitter @RepMTG.
