Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account has been restored
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account has been restored, a move that comes as the social media platform restores various accounts following Elon Musk’s takeover of the company.
“I’m the only member of Congress that the unelected big tech oligarchs have permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and my ability to campaign and raise funds by shouting ‘Covid misinformation’. My account is back. Follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”, the Republican from Georgia tweeted from her @RepMTG account, which had remained operational after the other account was permanently banned.
Twitter permanently suspended Greene’s @mtgreenee account in January, claiming that the account violated the company’s policies regarding COVID-19 misinformation.
“We have permanently suspended the account… (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” a Twitter spokesman said reports back then. “We have made it clear that in accordance with our strike system for this policy, we will be permanently suspending accounts for repeated policy violations.”
Since Musk took the helm at Twitter, he has restored previously banned accounts, including that of former President Donald Trump — Trump was a prolific tweeter during his tenure in the White House but was kicked off the platform at the end of his presidency.
Earlier this year, prior to the Twitter acquisition, Musk had called Twitter’s move to oust Trump “morally wrong and downright stupid” and said he would reverse the decision. Last week, Musk released a Twitter poll asking if he should restore Trump’s account, and the result was that a majority of votes in the poll supported the account’s restoration.
“People have spoken. Trump is reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk said tweeted on Saturday – the Latin phrase he used means “The voice of the people (is) the voice of God.”
Greene had replied to Musk’s post from her @RepMTG account. tweet, “President Trump should never have been banned in the first place. Interestingly, it took a poll to decide to reinstate him. What is required to recover my account? Freedom of expression is important.”
