Citing “repeated violations” of the Covid-19 misinformation policy, Twitter has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account.
“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” said Twitter in a statement.
“We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
Greene, R-Ga., claims to still have access to her professional account, @RepMTG, although Twitter did not specify what she said that resulted in a permanent suspension.
Greene stated in a statement released by her office on Sunday that she was suspended for tweeting Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System statistics.
“Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene said. “That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
Twitter’s policy, which includes a strike system for breaches, was implemented in March of last year. A single strike may not result in action, but the business will apply locks on accounts that break the policy on a regular basis.
According to the company’s website, five strikes will result in a permanent suspension.
Greene was suspended several times in 2021 for violating company policies.
In January last year, Greene was issued a suspension for making false claims about widespread voter fraud in Georgia. She was also temporarily suspended in July and August for violating the Covid-19 policy with tweets regarding vaccines.
