Twitter temporarily suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for vaccine misinformation

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's Twitter account was temporarily suspended.

ATLANTA (CBS46) — United States Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from Twitter following a misleading tweet Monday night, according to CNN's Donie O'Sullivan.

The tweet contends COVID-19 "vaccines are failing and do not reduce the spread of the virus."

As you can see on the original tweet, Twitter labeled it with a "this tweet may be misleading" warning.

According to O'Sullivan, Twitter has put the account into "read-only mode" for a week because this is not the first time she has violated Twitter rules.

Back in July, Twitter temporarily suspended Taylor Greene's account for, once again, sharing misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.

According to O' Sullivan, Twitter has a five strike policy on COVID misinformation, and he said "it looks like Greene is on her 4th strike," based off the week-long suspension.

According to Twitter's rules, a 5th strike could lead to permanent suspension from Twitter.
