Marjorie Taylor Greene Twitter Account Gets Punished Again

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R), a Republican from Georgia, had access to her official Twitter account temporarily revoked on Tuesday after she made repeated remarks about an upcoming "trans day of revenge" rally.

The initial tweet from Greene featured a poster promoting the April 1 demonstration, as reported by The Hill. The rally, which will take place near the Supreme Court, appears to have been planned by Our Rights DC. The phrase "stop trans genocide," used by campaigners to indicate institutionalized discrimination against transgender people, appears prominently on the billboard.

The Republican senator complained that Twitter had disabled her original tweet, the publication noted, but she reshared the poster. After Twitter again removed it, Greene simply deleted it and tried again.

The website then informed her that her access would be limited for the next week. Twitter says it is removing the poster from the platform because it promotes violence.

Twitter's Head of Trust and Safety, Ella Irwin, put it this way: "'Vengeance' does not indicate peaceful protest. We had to automate the removal of more than 5,000 tweets and retweets from this poster from our site.

The search follows a deadly massacre in Nashville, where three children and three teachers were killed when Ashley Hale, a transgender person, opened fire at a Christian school that authorities believe she had attended.
