Twitter announced on Sunday that it had permanently suspended one of the accounts of Republican-elected official Marjorie Taylor Green, who was accused of violating social network regulations on information on the pandemic.

The social network closed his personal account, @mtgreenee, on which this staunch supporter of Donald Trump, became known for his extravagant actions, especially the transmission of many false information about the anti-Kovid vaccine.
Ms. Green, who has reproduced allegations of election fraud that the former president campaigned for without proof, but has control over the @RepMTG account elected to the House of Representatives, has so far made little use of it.
The social network did not specify which messages were problematic, but in a statement sent to the AFP it pointed to its regular “penalty system”, which imposed several violations before suspending the account.
Controversial electioneers have already seen her account blocked for a week in August, as she tweeted that the vaccine would not “work”. On Saturday, she stated again, without any factual element, that “the vast majority of deaths are due to the vaccine against COVID.”
On Sunday, Ms. Green criticized the sanctions: “America is the enemy and the truth cannot be confronted,” she wrote in a statement.
“It simply came to our notice then that we did not need them. “
The social network banned Donald Trump after he attacked the capital on January 6, 2021, whitewashing his supporters by inciting “stolen elections”.
