Twitter permanently suspended the personal account of Republican Congressmember Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeatedly posting misinformation about COVID-19. The suspension came after the far-right Georgia lawmaker tweeted over the weekend about “extremely high amounts of Covid vaccine deaths.”

It was Greene’s “fifth strike,” according to Twitter, which previously temporarily suspended her for other false claims about the pandemic. The disabled Twitter handle was Greene’s preferred account, though she still has access to her congressional handle.
