Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)


Twitter locks Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for seven days: Twitter locked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (R-GA) for her tweets condemning a post that was promoting a Trans Day of Vengeance. In the post, she said, "My Congressional Twitter account was suspended today. @elonmusk, how is it 'violent speech' to expose the 'Trans Day of Vengence' a day after a mass murder committed by a transgender shooter? And to call on the DOJ to investigate it? I condemned the incitement to violence &..." Twitter flagged the tweets for violating the platform's rules against violent speech. "You may not share abusive content, harass someone, or encourage other people to do so," the notice said. It appears Twitter censored every post about the Trans Day of Vengeance, even if the post criticized the event. Twitter VP of Trust and Safety Ella Irwin tweeted that "The graphic was reported by a high number of users across our platform yesterday and yes, I'm sure the timing of that was due to heightened sensitivity to the language, given the tragic events in Nashville. We always evaluate tweets driving a sudden spike in user complaints."
