Twitter said Sunday it had mistakenly suspended the account of freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor GreeneMarjorie Taylor GreeneRep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she's meeting with Trump 'soon' in Florida QAnon site shutters after reports identifying developer Republicans head to runoff in GA-14 MORE (R-Ga.), calling the incident an “error.”

"We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service. In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error,” a Twitter spokesperson wrote in a statement to The Hill.

“This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated,” the statement added.


Greene's personal account, @mtgreenee, was suspended for about 12 hours, according to The Associated Press.

She responded to Twitter's confirmation of an error, writing on the platform “.@Twitter suspended me again by 'mistake' yesterday after I tweeted, ‘He is risen.” Everyone knows that’s a LIE, and it was no mistake.”

In another tweet, she wrote that she is “looking forward to President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden administration still seizing land near border despite plans to stop building wall: report Illinois House passes bill that would mandate Asian-American history lessons in schools Overnight Defense: Administration says 'low to moderate confidence' Russia behind Afghanistan troop bounties | 'Low to medium risk' of Russia invading Ukraine in next few weeks | Intelligence leaders face sharp questions during House worldwide threats he MORE’s social media platform,” referring to the social media network that the former is reportedly discussing with several apps.

Prior to the suspension, Greene tweeted a photo celebrating Easter, writing "Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen!"

Sunday’s incident was the second time Twitter had mistakenly suspended Greene’s account in three weeks. Last month, the company also said its automated systems "took enforcement action on the account referenced in error."

In January, Twitter temporarily suspended Green’s personal account following “multiple” violations of the platform’s content policy.


Greene said the suspension was the result of "the borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse."

The avid Trump supporter has previously voiced support for QAnon conspiracy theories. On Thursday, she introduced two bills that would eliminate the salary of the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, Anthony FauciAnthony Fauci Fauci believes Johnson & Johnson vaccine will get back on track 'quickly' Maxine Waters cuts off Jim Jordan, Fauci sparring at hearing: 'Shut your mouth' Pfizer CEO: Third dose of COVID-19 vaccine 'likely' needed within 1 year MORE, and ban vaccine passports.

In February, the House voted to strip Greene of her committee assignments, pointing to her past endorsement of conspiracy theories, racist dogma and violence against Democratic politicians.

The resolution passed largely along party lines, 230 to 199. Eleven Republicans joined the Democratic ranks in voting to remove Greene from the House Education and Budget committees.
