Twitter 'permanently suspended' Marjorie Taylor Greene's personal account

Greene's account has been suspended due to "repeated violations" of Covid-19's Twitter policy of lying, the company said.


Twitter has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., For "repeated violations" of its Covid policy, the company said Sunday.

"We have permanently suspended the account you mentioned (@mtgreenee) in repeated violations of our COVID-19 indirect information policy," the Twitter statement said. "We were clear that, according to our strike plan for this policy, we would permanently suspend accounts for repeated policy violations."

Greene still seems to have access to her work account, @RepMTG. Twitter did not say what was posted on Twitter to get what it calls a permanent suspension.

Greene said in a statement sent to his office on Sunday he was suspended for posting statistics on Twitter at the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Anyone can report a serious incident to the system, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services. The organization says it is "not designed to determine whether a vaccine has created a health problem."

"Twitter is an enemy of America and cannot control the truth," Greene said. "Okay, I'll show America that we don't need them and it's time to defeat our enemies."

Twitter implemented a criminal strike strike in March. A single claim may not trigger an action, but the company will lock in accounts that violate policy repeatedly.

Five or more strikes lead to "permanent suspension," according to the company's website. Greene was suspended several times last year for violating policies.

In January of last year, Greene was suspended for making false claims about widespread voter fraud in Georgia. He was also suspended in July and August for violating Covid-19 policy and tweets regarding policies.

Greene's suspension is not the first time Twitter has blocked an elected official. Last year, it issued a similar motion against then-President Donald Trump for "gross violation of our Public Integrity Policy."

Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal told CNBC in February that Twitter would support the ban even if Trump re-runs.

"Our policies are designed to ensure that people do not incite violence," Segal said. "He was removed during his presidency, and there will be no difference from any government official once he is removed from office."
