Over the weekend, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) announced Twitter suspended her account for the second time in two weeks, immediately following a Tweet celebrating Easter Sunday.
“Twitter suspended me again by ‘mistake’ yesterday after I tweeted, ‘He is risen.’ Everyone knows that’s a LIE, and it was no mistake,” she wrote on Twitter after announcing she’s back online.
After being suspended, Greene took to alternative social media platform Gab to announce her suspension and indicated her Christian faith played a role in Twitter’s decision.
“After tweeting, ‘He is risen! Happy Easter!’ I was suspended this morning for 12 hours!,” she wrote. “Was it my Christian faith?”
Following her complaints, Twitter brushed if off as a mistake, with a spokesperson for Twitter telling news outlets that “we use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service. In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated.”
Twitter also blamed Greene’s mid-March suspension, during which House Democrats proposed a resolution to expel Greene from Congress over past social media posts, on a mistake.
“This move eliminated any possibility for Congresswoman Greene to defend her reputation, her seat, and most importantly the votes of 230,000 Georgians in the 14th District on the Twitter platform. This is yet another attempt by the Silicon Valley Cartel to silence voices that speak out against their far-left woke orthodoxy,” Greene’s office noted at the time.
Greene joins a ever-expanding laundry list of prominent conservative figures who have become victims of suspension and bans from social media platforms. From former President Donald Trump to Project Veritas, Twitter suspensions have grown into a sort of badge of honor with how many conservatives have ended up expelled from the platform for speaking the truth.
