Twitter Restores Marjorie Taylor Greene's Personal Account
Twitter is restoring another prominent figure’s account, the latest in a recent string of such decisions.
On Monday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) tweeted from her Congressional account, “I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned.”
“On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign [and] fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation,’ she continued.
She added, “My account is back. Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”

In January, the Georgia Congresswoman’s personal account was suspended for “repeated violations” of its COVID-19 misinformation policy.
In a statement to The Hill, a Twitter spokesperson said, “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”
At the time, Greene called the social media platform an “enemy to America.”
The suspension was supposed to be permanent.
However, it has been reversing such decisions in the wake of billionaire Elon Musk taking over the company.
On Friday, Twitter restored the satirical Christian site The Babylon Bee’s account.
And on Saturday, Musk announced a major decision involving former President Donald Trump and the social media platform.
In a tweet, he wrote, “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.”
“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” he added.
The people have spoken.
Trump will be reinstated.
Vox Populi, Vox Dei. https://t.co/jmkhFuyfkv

The announcement comes after Musk posted a poll asking whether Trump should be reinstated on the platform. By the time the poll had closed, there were more than 15,000,000 million votes.
Nearly 52% said the former president should be allowed back on the platform, while 48.2% said no.
