“We are clear that in accordance with our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy,” a Twitter spokesperson said.
Permanent ban on @mtgreenee’s account after tweeting about Covid-19 vaccines.
The account she uses for her Congressional office, @RepMTG, remains active.
Twitter earlier this year unveiled a “strike” mechanism for its COVID-19 misinformation policy, which acts as an enforcement mechanism. The first strike acted as a warning, but the second, third and fourth strikes involved account locks. After five or more strikes, users can have their accounts permanently suspended.
According to NBC News, Green’s office said in a statement through his office, “Twitter is America’s enemy and can’t handle the truth. It’s okay, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s our It’s time to defeat the enemies.
Greene’s account was suspended for a week in August after she tweeted that vaccines had “failed.” He was warned at the time that a violation of his COVID-19 policy was the fourth “strike”. Green has also been fined repeatedly for violating the rules for wearing masks on the floor of the House of Representatives.
