Twitter Inc.recently announced that they have permanently closed Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account in their platform. The decision was made after Greene posted multiple tweets in her @mtgreenee account, deemed as in violation id the platform’s misinformation policy on COVID-19.
The decision is actually the first time that a Twitter account belonging to Congressional member has been permanently banned. Other Republican members who previously received warning from Twitter include Barry Moore and Jim Banks.
The Georgia congresswoman has been involved in a long list of promoting conspiracy theories not substantiated by evidence. Twitter has in fact warned and temporarily suspended her account for tweeting false claims about various topics including the Capitol insurrection, and the presidential elections, ever since she got elected in November 2020.
In January last year, Twitter temporarily suspended her account after arguing with a state election official over voter fraud allegations. In June, Greene came out with a public apology after tweeting comments that likened the coronavirus vaccinations and mask mandates to8 the Holocaust that killed millions of Jews.
Greene Insists She is Spreading Truth Not Misinformation
Greene rebutted through the messaging app Telegram that Twitter is America’s enemy and that administrators of the social media platform refuse to accept the truth. She warned that communist Democrats or even the Big Tech companies cannot stop her so-called “truth” from spreading.
