Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s congressional Twitter account has been suspended for seven days after she posted an image promoting a protest organized by Our Rights D.C. The protest seeks to “Stop Trans Genocide” and was in response to a recent school shooting in Nashville carried out by a transgender former student. According to the New York Post, Twitter suspended Greene’s account as part of a crackdown on posts referencing the “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest. Greene’s personal Twitter account, which was previously banned for repeatedly posting information about COVID-19, remains active.
In response to her suspension, Greene accused Twitter of trying to “whitewash” the violence promoted by far-left groups on social media. She demanded that her account be immediately restored and tagged Twitter CEO Elon Musk and the head of Trust and Safety, Ella Irwin, in her tweet.
Irwin responded to another user earlier in the day, stating that Twitter had automatically swept their platform and removed over 5,000 tweets and retweets of the Trans Day of Vengeance poster. Irwin clarified that Twitter does not support tweets that incite violence, and organizing or supporting peaceful protests is acceptable.
Greene also sparked conversation on the platform when she suggested that hormone therapy could be to blame for the Nashville school shooting. Her personal Twitter account was permanently suspended in January 2022 for violating the platform’s COVID policies. However, her ban was lifted when Elon Musk took over Twitter in November 2022.
