WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBS) – Twitter has suspended a member of congress, again. This time for spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Dist. 14) is seen here responding to a previous twitter suspension last month, also for a false COVID-19 related tweet.
That time, the Georgia Republican’s account was suspended for only 12 hours.
This time, her account is now in “read-only” status for a week, with Twitter citing the quote “… Repeated violations of the Twitter rules.”
Taylor Greene’s tweet in question stated the food and drug administration should not formally approve COVID-19 vaccines, claiming in part that they are quote “failing.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports COVID-19 vaccines are both “safe and effective,” and recommends that everyone who is eligible get one.
According to the CDC website, more than a million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been given in the United States between December and August 2nd.
