Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Twitter temporarily suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for violating its covid-19 misinformation policy after she falsely claimed that the coronavirus was "not dangerous" for some people. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed Monday evening that the company had taken "enforcement action" on Greene's personal account for violations of its policies. The account was put on "read-only" mode for 12 hours, which according to Twitter's rules happens "if it seems like an otherwise healthy account is in the middle of an abusive episode." The 12-hour suspension is the shortest of Twitter's read-only penalties, which its website says can range from 12 hours to seven days, "depending on the nature of the violation." Greene's account had violated the misinformation policy multiple times, according to Twitter.

Large Marge knows what she is doing. She knew she'd get suspended. That was her goal. Now she can rile up the terminally stupid by claiming her first amendment rights were violated. She is performance artist.

Really any attention given to this clown defeats the purpose.

She's in it for the attention.

Her Twitter account wasn't totally suspended. Only put on a "read only" mode for 12 hours.

I suppose that's minor "shot across the bow" to warn her that future infractions of the misinformation rules will be more severe.

I doubt if it will even slow her down. She's a committed spreader of lies.

"Did anyone notice?"

Unlikely. But it did give her an opportunity to flood Twitter with all her 'saved up' conspiracy theories when the 12 hours expired.

She's been such a repeat offender I'm surprised Twitter was so lenient.

Considering she had three press conferences to announce that the Twitter NAZI's suspended her and she sent out fundraising blasts off of it...yes.

Performance artist.

She's not any better than a donkey show.

A private company has the right to display or allow whatever message they want.

#17 The degree to which these tech giants are controlling content reaches the stage of editorializing which means they lost Section 230 protections. They are trying to have it both ways and so far they are succeeding.
