Twitter on Sunday blocked the personal account of Georgian Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Green, repeatedly peddler From misinformation, then chirp About “extremely high amounts of CEgg Vaccine Deaths.” Greene’s statement is false, and this was her last hit on the podium, literally.
The social media company confirmed to Gizmodo on Sunday that it has suspended Greene’s personal account (Tweet embed) for her “repeated violations” COVID-19 Misinformation Policy, which prohibits users from using Twitter to share false or misleading information about the novel coronavirus that could cause harm. Greene had over 465,000 followers on the account.
“We have permanently suspended the account you referred to (mtgreenee) due to repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told Gizmodo in an email. “We have made it clear that in accordance with our alert system to this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated policy violations.”
Twitter updated its covid-19 disinformation policy last year to include the five-strike system. Enforcement actions range from no action on the account (first offense) and account lockout (second, third, and fourth offenses) to permanent suspension (fifth offense).
In her tweet, which can no longer be viewed, Green falsely claimed that The higher deaths were associated with covid-19 vaccines and included a misleading plot with information from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, according to New York times. Anyone can submit reports to this government database, known as VAERS, but Not verified It does not show causation.
Most importantly, the VAERS officials themselves did so Post a disclaimer On the website of the database about the information collected it says that it can not be used to make conclusions about vaccines.
“VAERS accepts reports of adverse events and reactions that occur after vaccination,” the officials wrote. Despite its great importance in monitoring the safety of vaccines, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine whether a vaccine has caused or contributed to an adverse event or disease. Reports may contain incomplete, inaccurate, incidental or unverifiable information.
However, that doesn’t mean Greene has been kicked out of Twitter entirely. The company did not suspend its account with Congress, Tweet embed, which has more than 393,000 followers. When we asked Twitter why RepMTG has also not been suspended due to their affiliation with The same person, the company said that Another Greene account is not currently violating its rules.
in the current situation CNN got it After being banned by Twitter, Green accused social media platforms of trying to “stop the truth”.
Social media platforms cannot prevent the truth from spreading far and wide. Green said the big tech companies can’t stop the truth. The communist democrats cannot stop the truth. I stand with the truth and with the people. We will beat!”
This is of course a lie. Because Greene doesn’t often tell the truth.
