Twitter Restricts Green’s Congressional Account For ‘Revenge’ Posts


Twitter on Tuesday restricted Congressional accounts for seven days after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) repeatedly posted images of posters about a rally called the “Trans Day of Vengeance.” .

Green tweeted about the incident after three children and three adults were killed in a shooting at a Christian school in Nashville. According to police, the suspect in the shooting identified as transgender and uses his/his pronouns.

Twitter’s head of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, said in a separate post: Tweet The platform had automatically removed the poster image due to concerns it might incite violence.

“We do not support tweets that incite violence, regardless of who posted them. ‘Revenge’ does not mean peaceful protest,” Irwin said.

This poster highlights an event, believed to be hosted by Our Rights DC, taking place on Saturday, April 1st. That Twitter account was locked on Tuesday.

“We need more visibility,” he said, calling on people to come to the Supreme Court to “stop transgenocide.” The main text of the poster reads “Trans Day of Vengeance”.

Greene first deleted the tweet, then reposted it to voice her dissatisfaction with the action from Twitter, re-shared the poster, and asked the Justice Department to investigate.

Twitter deleted the tweet again, prompting yet another tweet and a repost from Greene.

“People need to know about the threat they face from ANTIFA and TRANS TERRORISM!!!” said Green.

Twitter then sent Green a notice that her account functionality would be restricted for seven days, according to a screenshot shared with The Hill. Posted by Green on her personal campaign account.

Erwin too Said Twitter said it was “not applying the strike to anyone,” but Green responded from her personal campaign account that that was not true.

Senator JD Vance (Ohio Republican) also image of a poster that was still alive at the time of Green’s suspension early on Tuesday.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment other than sending a poop emoji. This is an automated response to an inquiry sent to his address in a news agency email recently released by new owner Elon Musk earlier this month.
