Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has had her account permanently suspended after repeatedly violating Twitter’s Covid-19 misinformation policies.

“We permanently suspended the account (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our Covid-19 misinformation policy. We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy,” tweeted a Twitter spokesperson on Sunday.

According to Twitter’s Covid-19 policy on misinformation, users are allowed up to five strikes before the account is permanently suspended.

As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, Twitter temporarily suspended Greene in August 2020 for tweeting about vaccine misinformation.

Her official congressional account, @RepMTG, is still active.

Responding to the permanent suspension, Greene said it proved that Twitter is “an enemy to America”, the BBC reported.

She accused Twitter of joining unidentified enemies in “a Communist revolution” in a statement posted to the social media outlet Telegram.

According to the BBC, Greene stirred controversy by supporting former president Donald Trump’s unsubstantiat

ed claims that the 2020 presidential election was rigged and was also linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Her frequent skepticism about vaccines has led to fines for her refusal to follow Covid guidelines in Congress, including those regarding wearing masks on the House floor.

Earlier this week, Greene published a 19-tweet thread in which she criticized the status of unvaccinated individuals as a “subclass” and falsely claimed that “extremely high” numbers of vaccine-related deaths were ignored.

Towards the end of the since-deleted thread, she called for action: “Before Covid, We were free. After Covid, We are no longer free. The question is will the people break free from covid psychosis before it’s too late.”
