The social network shut down his personal account @mtgreenee, in which this staunch supporter of Donald Trump, known for his extravagant actions, published many misinformation about the anti-Govt vaccine in particular.
Ms. Green, who has since duplicated allegations of electoral fraud stamped without evidence by the former president, however, has control of the @RepMTG account elected to the House of Representatives, which she has so far used sparingly.
The social network did not specify which messages were problematic, but noted in a report sent to the AFP its step-by-step “penalty system” that it imposes a number of violations before suspending the account.
The controversial pick had already seen his account blocked for a week in August because he tweeted that the vaccines were “not working”. On Saturday, he reiterated that “the highest number of deaths due to the vaccine against COVID” is without any facts.
On Sunday, Ms Greene slammed the move, saying “Twitter is an enemy of the United States and cannot face the truth.”
“It simply came to our notice then that the United States did not need them. “
After the attack on Donald Trump on January 6, 2021, the social network blocked him, whitewashing him by inciting “stolen elections” by his supporters.
