Twitter has once again suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), claiming that she violated the site’s policy against posting “misleading information” related to the coronavirus pandemic. The temporary suspension is yet another enforcement action by Twitter against Greene, several of which the platform described as “Mistakes.”
The New York Post reports that Twitter has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene this week for violating its policy against posting “misleading information” related to the coronavirus pandemic. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to the Post that Greene’s personal account would be placed in “read-only mode” for 12 hours, presumably meaning her followers can view her previous tweets but she is unable to make any new posts. This suspension should expire on Tuesday morning.
Twitter’s coronavirus vaccine misinformation policy was unveiled in March and states that 12-hour suspensions are given to uses that have violated its policy on more than two or three occasions. A fourth violation results in a week’s suspension while a fifth strike can lead to a permanent account ban.
Twitter also added notices to two of Taylor Greene’s tweets about coronavirus vaccines. The first tweet from Taylor Greene responded to a post from surgeon Dr. David Samadi about coronavirus hospitalizations in the United Kingdom.
“In the United Kingdom, 47% of new COVID-19 cases are vaccinated people,” Samadi tweeted, to which Greene responded: “This is why no entity should force NON-FDA approved vaccines or masks. Instead help people protect their health by defeating obesity, which will protect them from covid [sic] complications & death, and many other health problems. We should invest in health, not human experimentation.”
