‘Misleading’ COVID-19 Posts Earn US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Suspension on Twitter

Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene will have to abstain from posting new tweets after the social network temporarily suspended her account –again!- for 12 hours for sharing misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines, CNN reports, quoting a company spokesperson.

Greene, who is known for her incendiary rhetoric, the staunch support for ex-President Donald Trump and for promoting conspiracy theories has been banned for sharing two tweets about COVID-19, which Twitter deemed misleading.

She posted her first ‘misleading’ tweet on Sunday night, responding to a post from scandal-scarred surgeon Dr. David Samadi about coronavirus hospitalizations in the UK, saying that 47% of new COVID-19 cases in the UK are vaccinated people and that this is why no entity should force non-FDA approved vaccines or masks.

Her second tweet was posted Monday morning, saying that the controversial COVID-19 vaccines should not be forced on US military for a virus that is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65 and that the jab should be a choice, not a mandate for everyone.

Considering the fact that she was suspended earlier this year for a thread of tweets about the elections to the Georgia Senate, she was banned due to Twitter’s policy against people who repeatedly share misinformation and received warning that her account could be blocked forever if she continues to spread false information.
