Twitter Suspends Newly Elected Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene For 12 Hours
Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from Twitter for 12 hours.
The newly-elected Republican has been a staunch defender of Donald Trump and echoed his cries that the 2020 election was rigged, fraudulent and rife with concerns.
Greene, who is also a QAnon supporter, has released a statement saying she has been blocked from posting on the social media site for half a day for violating their rules.
"Just days after Silicon Valley Cartel launched a multi-front attack to chill free speech in America by deplatforming President Donald Trump and purging an unknown number of conservatives, Twitter has decided to suspend my personal account without explanation," she said.
"The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control," she said.
"If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of 'inciting violence' simply for having an conservative view.
"Americans rights are being stripped and they aren't being heard by the people they elected to represent them. And with Big Tech silencing them, they literally can't be heard. The censorship has got to stop."
The 12-hour suspension means she is still free to browse Twitter, however she is limited to only sending direct messages to her followers. She can't tweet, like or retweet any content she sees.
The move came after she tweeted about two officials in Georgia, who she said 'failed' to 'fix' the election.

"The 1-5 disaster in Georgia lays solely in the hands of state leadership who failed voters in our state. @GaSecofState and @GabrielSterling were begged by Republicans to fix our elections. They did nothing. They are to blame, not me, not @realDonaldTrump, not @CollinsforGA," she wrote alongside a video interview with 11Alive.
It also came after a much more concerning post.
"I encourage all Americans, not just the 75 million people who voted for President Trump, to mobilize and make your voices heard in opposition to these attacks on our liberties," Greene wrote on Saturday (January 16).
That post was deleted over the weekend, however it's been captured by other Twitter users.
The tweet was a part of a larger thread ranting about how the 'Socialist Democrats, the incoming administration, the DC Swamp, and the Silicon Valley Cartel' were trying to set up 'Communist Chinese-style spying and censorship' on Americans.
Last week, Marjorie Taylor Greene indicated she will file an article of impeachment against Joe Biden on his first day in office.
