Twitter Cancels Account Of Legislator Marjorie Taylor Greene, For Misinforming About Covid-19
Twitter announced this Sunday the permanent suspension of the personal account of Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, after repeatedly spreading false information about the covid-19 pandemic.
Greene is a Republican representative in the House of Representatives for Georgia and one of the most controversial figures in the US Congress.
“We have permanently suspended the account for repeated violations of our covid-19 disinformation policy,” the company noted.
Twitter did not specify what content had been disseminated by Taylor Greene that had caused the definitive cancellation of the account.
In August, the legislator had been warned with a temporary suspension of seven days after she published a message in which she assured that the vaccines are “failing” and that “they do not reduce the spread of the virus”.
The United States is the country in the world hardest hit by the pandemic, with more than 820,000 deaths from covid-19.
