Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was temporarily suspended from Twitter on Sunday afternoon for “repeated violations of new rules the social media platform put in place following the violent US Capitol riot,” according to CNN.
Greene, a QAnon believing member of Congress, will be mandated to serve a 12 hour period “time-out” before being able to return to the platform.
“The account referenced has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNN.
Twitter has suspended the account of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for 12 hours, for repeatedly tweeting election misinformation, the company tells @donie. (She tweets a lot of wildly inaccurate stuff about the election and other subjects.)

Responding to the temporary suspension handed down from Twitter, Greene said the action taken by Twitter equated to “rights being stripped away.”

“Americans’ rights are being stripped away, and they aren’t being heard by the people they elected to represent them. And with Big Tech silencing them, they literally can’t be heard,” Greene stated in a press release.
