Twitter Slaps Marjorie Taylor Greene With One-Week Time Out
Just weeks after getting a slap on the wrist for spreading dangerous misinformation surrounding Covid-19 on Twitter and laughing at a question referencing dead children in her home state, it seems QAnon-backing Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, has learned approximately nothing from her 12-hour bird-app ban, spewing even more nonsensical garbage onto the internet.
“The FDA should not approve the covid vaccines,” Greene wrote on Monday, directly countering the CDC’s guidance that Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Yet the congressional Shawn Michaels cosplayer didn’t stop there, baselessly claiming that vaccines were “failing” and that they “do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks,” both of which experts have refuted, per the New York Times.
As such, the Twitter overlords decided to up the ante, providing Greene with a Leviathan-level punishment that will undoubtedly make her not only question her actions, but reflect on herself, her persona, and her politics -- adding a disclaimer to her tweet and placing the lawmaker in a one-week time out. Someone call the Hague -- we’ve got some serious war crimes going on here.
The post "was labeled in line with our COVID-19 misleading information policy,” a spokesperson for the app told CNN of their decision. “The account will be in read-only mode for a week due to repeated violations of the Twitter Rules."
Now, reader, I know what you may be thinking -- how many times is Twitter going to let her get away with this? Well, fortunately, it seems the end may be nigh for Greene’s Twitter reign of terror. Throughout her time making the cursed bird app somehow more cursed, the congresswoman has already racked up four Twitter strikes -- two of which have come in the last month, reps from the app told the New York Times. As such, if Greene violates the company’s coronavirus misinformation policy one more time, she could end up like her predecessor, Donald Trump, finding herself permanently banned from the platform.
In these trying times, one can only wish …
