Twitter permanently suspended the personal account of GOP firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Sunday.
Twitter explained the decision comes as a result of their policy on COVID-19 misinformation, which uses a “strike” system. The first handful of strikes prompts a 12-hour account lock, but eventually 5 strikes can result in a permanent suspension.
A spokesperson for Twitter told the Daily Dot, ”We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that…we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
“Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene said in a statement responding to the suspension. “They can’t successfully complete a Communist revolution when people tell the truth.”
The thread which prompted the permanent suspension was a comparison of “Before Covid” and “After Covid.” The tweets made debunked claims like “If you are white, you are likely last to receive life saving monoclonal antibodies.”
Many Twitter users celebrated the news.
Greene still has access to her official Twitter @RepMTG.
