Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Unbanned From Twitter

The reign of Hipster Rasputin has officially come to an end! Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) personal Twitter account has been officially unbanned, a decision that comes as numerous accounts have been restored to the platform following Elon Musk’s takeover of the social media giant.

“I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’ My account is back. Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;),” Greene posted from her congressional representative account.

Green’s personal account, @mtgreenee, was permanently banned from Twitter in January over claims she was trafficking in “COVID-19 misinformation.”

“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” said a Twitter spokesperson at the time. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

Also now allowed back on the platform is the account of former President Donald Trump along with many others.

At the time of writing, the former president’s Twitter account commands a massive following — almost 90 million since its restoration.

As TheBlaze noted, Musk opined that Twitter’s decision to ban Trump was “morally wrong and flat-out stupid” before he purchased the platform.

“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk posted Saturday — the Latin phrase that he used translates to “the voice of the people (is) the voice of God.”

Greene responded to Musk’s post informing users of Trump’s reinstatement, writing, “President Trump should have never been banned in the first place. Interesting it took a poll to decide to reinstate him. My personal account is still permanently banned for ‘covid misinformation.’ What does it take to reinstate my account? Freedom of speech matters.”
