Twitter has established a firm policy for suspending people who repeatedly spread dangerously false information about COVID and vaccines, and that policy extends to elected officials.

House Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene found that out the hard way when her Twitter account was suspended today for one week, after she falsely claimed that COVID vaccines aren’t working. This kind of false information can trick people into not getting vaccinated – particularly when it comes from an elected official – and can therefore get them killed.

   

Of course Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t belong on Twitter at all, but it looks like it’ll take at least one more COVID lie on her part before her suspension becomes permanent. Meanwhile, House Republicans are still refusing to assist in the two-thirds vote that would be required to expel her, meaning that Twitter is now doing more to stop Greene’s deadly ways than the Republican leadership is.
