Twitter has temporarily suspended the personal account of Republican congresswoman and QAnon evangelist Marjorie Taylor Greene over “multiple” violations of the platform’s content policy.
The Georgia representative, who was elected in November to her first term, has voiced support for the “QAnon” conspiracy theory which claims that President Trump has secretly battled a global cabal of cannibalistic pedophiles linked to the Democratic Party. She has also supported Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was “stolen from him,” and wore a mask that read “Trump won” on the House floor.
It wasn’t clear which specific posts led to Greene’s suspension, but Twitter moved to ban tens of thousands of accounts related to the QAnon conspiracy from the platform following the violent attack on Capitol Hill last week.
Twitter last week released a statement saying: “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm. Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon.”
