Twitter has once again locked an elected official out from their account and ability to communicate with his or her constituents.
Reuters has the story:
Twitter Inc, on Sunday, locked the account of Republican U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a political newcomer known for promoting the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory.
The social media platform suspended her account after the newly elected Georgia congresswoman sparred with a state election official over baseless voter fraud allegations.
Greene’s account “has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations” of Twitter’s ‘civic integrity policy’, a company representative said in an emailed statement.
Greene accused Twitter of suppressing conservative political voices. “The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control,” she said in a statement.
Greene promoted online conspiracy theory QAnon in a 2017 video but later backtracked, saying it was not part of her campaign. She won a House seat in conservative rural northwest Georgia after her Democratic opponent dropped out.
QAnon backers have pushed conspiracies on social media that include the baseless claim that U.S. President Donald Trump secretly is fighting a cabal of child-sex predators, among them prominent Democrats, figures in Hollywood and “deep state” allies.
Twitter suspended tens of thousands of accounts primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content after the violence in Washington earlier this month when supporters of Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Twitter banned the president of the United States. They’ll have no issue moving forward banning or silencing anyone they do not like.
This is very dangerous and must not be allowed to continue.
The silencing of conservative voices is going to lead to an outcome that no one is going to like and the tech titans and Dem cheerleaders may regret their decisions.
After all the voices of 75 million Trump supporters cannot and will not be silenced.
