Twitter has permanently closed the personal account of Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene. The social media company said the republican congresswoman has repeatedly violated its policy on coronavirus misinformation.
It was confirmed via a statement by Twitter.
“We permanently suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement, as first reported by CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
With the violation of Twitter’s policy of misinformation about COVID, the account suspension comes after five or more strikes. That gives us the information that Greene violated te the policy at least five times.
Greene released a statement about her account being permanently closed on GETTR, the conservative social media platform launched by Jason Miller, who was the chief spokesman for former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and a senior advisor for the former president’s 2020 campaign.
“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth. That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies,” Greene wrote.
Twitter in March said it would permanently suspend accounts that repeatedly post COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.
However, the official representative account for Greene, a freshman Republican from Georgia, remains active on Twitter.
In May, Greene compared mask mandates to the Holocaust and apologized for her comments the next month, but then compared President Joe Biden’s calls to vaccinate Americans against the coronavirus to the Nazi regime.
“Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people,” she tweeted in July. “People have a choice, they don’t need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment.”
