Twitter bans Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene personal account of COVID 19 misinformation

Twitter has permanently suspended the personal account of Producer Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) “for further violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” according to the company. Her official government account is still active.

Producer Greene has been prolific in posting articles and statistics that seem to be related to the pandemic but are often misleading or misleading. This is one of the topics that Twitter has drawn online in the sand, because misinformation about the virus, how it spreads, the effectiveness of vaccines, etc. has a major impact on public health.

The COVID-19 policy on Twitter is set out here;; In a statement, the company said: "We have made it clear that, in line with our strike policy for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for further breaches of the policy."

The permanent ban follows a number of shorter account locks and alerts, which occurred and were reported throughout 2022. Greene then complained about violations of his "freedom of speech," despite Twitter being loud. privately owned and operated by clear rules, and last protested in a statement this morning: “Twitter is an enemy of America and cannot handle the truth. That's fine, I'll show America we don't need them and it's time to defeat our enemies. ”

It is unclear whether this statement means that she will stop using this "enemy" platform which she says she does not need. Her official U.S. Representative account is online, though not used in a week. I have asked Twitter if this account has also been compromised by its breaches, and I will update this post if I hear back.
