Twitter has been suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for 12 hours after she tweeted that for people under 65, the virus is “not dangerous.”
Also, her implying that “defeating obesity” would help COVID recovery rates apparently took an issue on Twitter.
Green’s account had violated the company’s policy that states, “You may not use Twitter’s services to share false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill.
The company’s policy states, “Content that is demonstrably false or misleading and may lead to a significant risk of harm (such as increased exposure to the virus, or adverse effects on public health systems) may not be shared on Twitter.”
It turns out that in the mandatory vaccinations, Greene has been an outspoken opponent.
On Monday, Greene tweeted, “The controversial #COVID19 vaccines should not be forced on our military for a virus that is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65, with 6,000 vax related deaths and many concerning side effects reported, the vax should be a choice not a mandate for everyone.”

Greene’s tweets are still on her account but with a “misleading” tag that labeled her tweets.
“This tweet is misleading. Learn why health officials recommend a vaccine for more people.”
According to Twitter’s COVID-19 misleading information policy states that, “false or misleading information about the virus’s prevalence, risk of infection, or death” will result in action.
A Twitter spokesperson told CBS News on Monday night that her account is in “read-only” mode.
The far-right congresswoman could be permanently be kicked off from social media if she continues to spread COVID-19 misinformation.
