Twitter has permanently suspended Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for frequently breaching the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy. Greene’s personal Twitter account, @mtgreenee, is not affected by the restriction, and she may continue to access and post from her official account, @RepMTG.
According to Twitter spokesperson Katie Rosborough, Greene’s account was “permanently suspended” “for multiple violations” of the platform’s COVID-19 regulations. She said they have been explicit that they will permanently ban accounts for repeated violations of the policy, as outlined in their strike system for this policy.
In March 2021, Twitter developed a five-stroke system that locks users’ accounts if they tweet falsehoods regarding COVID-19 — the more strikes a user accrues, the longer they are temporarily blocked from their account. However, after five strikes, a user’s account is permanently suspended. Twitter did not confirm Greene’s final message. Greene addressed the matter in a Telegram and Facebook post.
Greene asserts that Twitter is an enemy of America and is incapable of dealing with the truth. Additionally, he stated that social media networks could not prevent spreading far and wide. Further, she alleges she was suspended for tweeting data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a database that tracks potential adverse responses to immunizations, including the COVID-19 shots.
Last year, Greene was suspended multiple times for breaking the platform’s standards. Her account was momentarily blocked for violating Twitter’s rules on civic integrity, and she was later arrested again for tweeting false information on COVID-19. Her official congressional account, which staffers appear to post on infrequently, remains active.
Who is Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene?
Marjorie Taylor Greene (born May 27, 1974), commonly known as MTG, is an American politician, businesswoman, and far-right conspiracy theorist serving as the United States Representative for Georgia’s 14th congressional district since 2021. She was elected to Congress in 2020 following the retirement of Republican incumbent Tom Graves.
Greene has pushed far-right, white supremacist, and antisemitic conspiracy theories, including the white genocide hypothesis, QAnon, and Pizzagate, as well as other debunked conspiracy theories, including false flag mass shootings, the Clinton body count, and numerous 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Before her election to Congress, she campaigned to assassinate prominent Democratic lawmakers. As a Congresswoman, she compared the Democratic Party to Nazis and COVID-19 safety regulations to the Holocaust’s persecution of Jews. She expressed remorse for the latter analogy.
Greene and her husband, Perry, purchased Taylor Commercial from Greene’s father in 2002. Taylor Commercial is a general contractor situated in Alpharetta, Georgia. The duo is the company’s vice president and president, respectively.
Greene was identified as Taylor Commercial’s chief financial officer from 2007 to 2011, but an inquiry by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2021 showed that she had no substantial presence at the company. Greene resigned as the company’s CFO in 2011 and began CrossFit training.
Greene served as the executive director of the Family America Project, a conservative organization launched in January 2018. She moderated the organization’s Facebook group, where members posted death threats against Democrats, expressed bigotry toward the Obamas, and expressed support for various conspiracy theories, including those associated with the John Birch Society regarding the US government being infiltrated by communists.
