Marjorie Taylor Greene: My 12-hour Twitter suspension was a ‘communist-style attack’

According to Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, her recent 12-hour suspension from Twitter for spreading COVID misinformation is basically communism.

In a statement, Greene declared that the suspension was “a Communist-style attack on free speech.”

“Twitter, Facebook, and the rest of the Silicon Valley Cartel are working hand in hand with the White House to censor Americans,” she said.

One of Greene’s tweets that led to her suspension said that COVID is not dangerous for people who are under 65-year-old and are in shape.

From the Associated Press:

Twitter suspended Greene after President Joe Biden urged tech companies to take stronger action against bogus vaccine claims that are “killing people.” Twitter has defended its efforts to keep dangerous misinformation about COVID-19 off its site, saying it has removed thousands of tweets and challenged millions of accounts worldwide.

In an email to the AP, Twitter explained the reason for its actions.

“We took enforcement action on the account @mtgreenee for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the Covid-19 misleading information policy,” the company said in an email.
