America First Lawmaker Latest Victim Of Big Tech Censorship

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has once again become a victim of Big Tech censorship.

Twitter has temporarily suspended her account — yet again — claiming the pro-Trump Republican violated the platform’s policy posting “misinformation” related to the coronavirus pandemic. Twitter has enforced suspension against Greene in the past, several of which has been described as a “mistake” by the Big Tech site.

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to 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.

The second tweet posted by Taylor Greene on Monday morning stated:

Twitter marked both tweets as “misleading” and invited users to access information about the safety of the vaccines. Greene has been repeatedly suspended from Twitter for various reasons, but mainly for violating multiple “misinformation” guidelines.

In March, Taylor Greene was suspended from Twitter due to an “error” on the same day that Democrats launched an effort to expel her from the House of Representatives.

Taylor Greene’s Twitter account was suspended “accidentally” for a second time in April. The lockout occurred shortly after Rep. Greene posted a celebratory Easter message to her followers on the platform.
