Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was suspended by Twitter on Sunday morning, shortly after she tweeted, “He is risen. Happy Easter.” After 12 hours, Twitter reinstated her account, claiming a “systems error.” This is the second time in a few weeks that Green’s Twitter account has been suspended due to an “error.”
After the Easter greetings message, Green received a message from the company which said: “We have determined that you have violated the Twitter Rules, so we’ve temporarily limited some of your account features.”
Immediately the representative denounced what happened on her Gab account, making reference to the persecution she is receiving from Big Tech, who do not miss an opportunity to silence conservative voices:
“After tweeting, ‘He is risen! Happy Easter!’ I was suspended this morning for 12 hours! Was it my Christian faith? My never-ending demand to an end to murdering God’s creation in the womb? Is it my fight to protect our greatest right to defend ourselves, come and take them? My willingness to Fire Fauci? Maybe my fight to stop mandated vaccine passports? Or how about calling out Ilhan Omar?”
Several hours later, a company spokesperson explained that an automated system “took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated.”
Less than three weeks earlier, just as a group of Democrats was trying to oust Green from Congress, Twitter also canceled her account, Fox News reported.
At the time, Greene’s campaign reported that Twitter had notified her around 1 a.m. that her account with more than 380,000 followers had been suspended for an unspecified violation of the platform’s rules. They would reinstate her account at 12:45 p.m. on Friday.
The next day, Twitter told Fox News’ Friday afternoon that Greene’s account should not have been blocked and that it was done “in error.” But of course, by the time Twitter reinstated her account, the damage had been done. Greene lost the opportunity to defend herself live from accusations of the Democrats and their allies on the networks trying to oust her from Congress.
According to critics, this type of “mistake” by Twitter seems to be frequent in the cancellation of conservative accounts or messages, which raises the inevitable suspicion that these are “willful errors.”
