Twitter Permanently Bans Taylor Greene's Personal Account

Twitter has permanently "suspended" the personal account of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, citing her "repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy."

The account had more than 465,000 followers. Her official government Twitter account, which has more than 386,00 followers, is still active.

The personal account suspension went into effect after a post on New Year's Day in which she included a misleading graph purporting to show deaths related to COVID-19 vaccines.

Twitter's policy states that accounts with five or more "strikes" face permanent suspension.

Greene has a long history of supporting QAnon and various baseless conspiracy theories, including questioning the reality of school shootings and whether a plane actually hit the Pentagon on 9/11. In June, she compared pandemic mask and vaccination requirements to the Nazis' Holocaust killings.



Her personal account was suspended last January for violating Twitter's "civic integrity" policy, including repeating false claims about election fraud. It was also suspended last July and again last August for spreading COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.  

Last February, the House of Representatives voted 230-199 (including 11 Republicans joining the Democrats) to strip her of her committee assignments for her remarks supporting threats of violence against Democrats.   

After the ban, Greene released a statement calling Twitter "an enemy to America."
