‘What a coincidence?’
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgie lashed out at Twitter after the popular social media company said that they had suspended her account “in error” on the same day that Democrats introduced a motion to expel her from Congress.
“We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service,” said a spokesperson in a statement to CNBC.
“In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error,” the statement continued. “This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated.”
Greene, who apologized for previously supporting and spreading numerous conspiracy theories, had been temporarily suspended by the social media platform in January after she spread false claims about the results of the presidential election.
She demanded that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey explain how it was that she was accidentally suspended on such an important day.
“I was just told @Twitter suspended me for 12 hrs in ‘error,’ on the same day Dems introduced a resolution to expel me from Congress. What a coincidence?” tweeted Greene.
