Twitter on Monday evening temporarily suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she shared misinformation about Covid-19 and vaccines, a company spokesperson told CNN.

The Georgia Republican, who has a track record of incendiary rhetoric, will not be able to tweet for 12 hours due to Twitter’s policy against people who repeatedly share misinformation.

The social media platform had labeled two tweets from Greene as “misleading” in recent days. If she continues to share misinformation about Covid-19 through her Twitter account, Greene could be suspended from the platform permanently.

The temporary suspension comes as the White House has struck a confrontational posture with social media platforms over the prevalence of misleading claims about coronavirus vaccines as cases tick up nationwide.

“I am urging all Americans to help slow the spread of health misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond,” US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy wrote in a 22-page advisory released last week. “Health misinformation is a serious threat to public health. It can cause confusion, sow mistrust, harm people’s health, and undermine public health efforts. Limiting the spread of health misinformation is a moral and civic imperative that will require a whole-of-society effort.”

President Joe Biden has specifically called out Facebook over the dissemination of Covid-19 vaccine information, but he backed off his recent accusation that the company was directly responsible for “killing people” and suggested it was merely allowing misinformation to spread.

“My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally, that somehow I’m saying Facebook is killing people, that they would do something about the misinformation, the outrageous misinformation about the vaccine. That’s what I meant,” the President said Monday following a speech at the White House about the state of the economy.

Greene had received a 12-hour suspension from Twitter earlier this year following a conspiracy-laden thread about the Georgia Senate elections. Some of those tweets earned labels from Twitter noting: “This claim about election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”

The Georgia Republican has tried to make a name for herself being an outsider and a rabble-rouser and routinely uses parliamentary procedures to slow down House floor business, much to the dismay of her colleagues.

But the tactics have helped her win support on the far right. In April, her campaign announced she had raised $3.2 million in the first three months in office — an astonishing amount for a freshman member.

  1. Well – I got something in the middle of every hand for *TWITTER*, you can take it roll it and I can give you
    a great Idea where you can put it….;
    I probably get censored anyway, however that’s how I feel about the “TWITTER-PLATFORM”.

  2. Good! Liars and conspiracy theorists should not be allowed to influence weak Republican minds.

  3. Im a voter, and I was suspended from “Twitter” weeks ago and they refuse to tell me what I said that got me suspended. Its this type of thing that pushes conservatives to question everything. Im a 77 year old woman who is really angry and consider this an assault on FREE SPEECH.

  4. Election fraud was real! facebook shouldn’t ban that. As for misinformation on covid, that’s what fauci, pedophile biden and the rest of them have been spreading. Why should anyone listen to them?

  5. Twitter is nothing but a low-life POS. Jack Dorsey is involved in the Free Masons, Illumaniti and the Golden Circle all of which are Satanic organizations and Hillary is t the top of the Free Masons which tells you a whole lot. If you have been keeping tabs on the websites reporting about Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube you know that they all never take anything down or ban people for child sex, porn, child trafficking and so much more yet ban or take down good information that really benefits human beings. Banning Marjorie is just one small example of them wanting everything illegal, wrong, hateful, hurtful – you name it as long as it is a liberal saying those things. It is coming on a time where WE are going to have to step in and stop them or there won’t be an America anymore and we all are in concentration camps. Because it is coming.

  6. Exactly who determines that it may be misinformation? Even Lord Flip Flop Fauci can’t make up his mind about things. I don’t do Twitter, so I don’t know what the misinformation may be, but, you have one “expert” that may say one thing and another “expert” say something totally different. So, who determines the “misinformation ?” It’s like the push and misinformation about the vaccine. Seems like every day new information comes out about problems people are experiencing after getting the vaccine. So little is really known about the effects of all this. So, again, who determines that it may be “misinformation ?”Maybe the one/ones that determine the “misinformation “, they may be wrong about things.
    And while I’m asking, I thought the government had no control over Big Tech. Why is is now, even the president and other politicians are now pushing/telling Big Tech that they should “flag” and even “ban” people from the platform. If the government can tell them to do that, isn’t that saying they have a hand in Big Tech?
    This has all gotten so ridiculous. One more question, because I just do not understand, why in the world would the government, some in Congress and Senate want to turn the greatest country into ruins? Why?? If they are all against this country, they all should leave! Many of us love our country, The United States of America!!

  7. Big tech, have news for you. Truth is not misinformation. The American people have known the truth for over a year. All your lying is doing is confirming it. Go ahead and cancel and block all you like. In the end it’s your nickel, not ours.

  8. Exactly why I completely deleted my Twitter and Facebook. Censorship has no place in America. Misinformation is information they don’t want you to know even if it’s truth. Ever notice how they never give details or explain why they have a certain position. Mainstream and social media are propaganda mouthpieces. Propaganda is a tool that’s been effectively used during communist take overs. Every American should dump out of social media. Can’t censor people if they aren’t on to censor. Anyone know why our President can violate our immigration laws?

  9. Ecuse ME??? This must be a RHINO site!

    The dismay of her colleagues? Good, glad someone is taking a stand, and exactly which colleagues?

    The Georgia Republican has tried to make a name for herself being an outsider and a rabble-rouser and routinely uses parliamentary procedures to slow down House floor business, much to the dismay of her colleagues.

    Win support on the far right??? The support for the AMERICA FIRST/MAGA agenda ofwhichshe is a part, is well above 75%

    But the tactics have helped her win support on the far right. In April, her campaign announced she had raised $3.2 million in the first three months in office — an astonishing amount for a freshman member.

    Obviously this site is more for the likes of Tom and the other anti-Trump anti-America First RHINO’S!
