This is the second time in less than 30 days that Twitter has suspended Rep. Greene by mistake.
Earlier today U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was suspended from Twitter for 12 hours after she tweeted, “He Is Risen!” and “Happy Easter, everyone!” After several hours, with the suspension almost expired, Twitter now claims it made a mistake and has restored her account.
This evening Twitter reversed their suspension of Greene, and claimed it was a mistake, per Breaking 911. “Twitter suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green [sic] earlier today after she tweeted ‘He is risen’”, the outlet reported. “Twitter has now restored her account and says they ‘made a mistake’”.
The outlet also notes that this is the second time Twitter has “mistakenly” suspended Greene’s account, after previously admitting they suspended her account in “error” on March 19. The two events happened 16 days apart.
