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.

Can you believe it; Twitter finally suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene for spreading misinformation. Damned shame that it was only a 12 hour suspension. That’s a joke compared to suspensions of regular folks.🤬 pic.twitter.com/Uj9mUoWTuO

In the 12 hours Marjorie Taylor Greene is suspended from Twitter, another 137 Americans are going to die of COVID — mostly because of misinformation from people like Greene and the platforms that enable her to spread it.
