One day after Twitter permanently suspended her personal account for violating the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) announced she was suspended from Facebook for 24 hours.
“Facebook has joined Twitter in censoring me. This is beyond censorship of speech. I’m an elected Member of Congress representing over 700,000 US tax paying citizens and I represent their voices, values, defend their freedoms, and protect the Constitution,” Greene wrote in a post on pro-Trump social media site GETTR.
“Who appointed Twitter and Facebook to be the authorities of information and misinformation? When Big Tech decides what political speech of elected Members is accepted and what’s not then they are working against our government and against the interest of our people,” she added.
Greene also posted a screenshot of the message from Facebook notifying her of her 24 hour ban because she “previously posted something that didn’t follow our Community Standards.”
