Twitter permanently booted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from the social-media platform Sunday, saying she had repeatedly violated its policies by posting misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic.
“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
Twitter previously suspended Greene’s account for a week in August after she tweeted that the federal Food and Drug Administration “should not approve the covid vaccines,” saying the shots are “failing.”
Sunday’s ban was the fourth time Twitter has taken action against Greene over what it called misinformation.
Greene also has been hit with more than $80,000 in fines for violating Congress’ mask rules over 30 times.
In an interview in November with Newsmax, Green revealed that she hasn’t been vaccinated.
”And I will be standing strong, standing up for the people across this country that refuse to get vaccinated,” she said.
Her office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
