Marjorie Taylor Greene locked out of Twitter as Democrats move to expel her from Congress

 In a message on social media site Telegram, Marjorie Taylor Greene says she has been temporarily barred from posting on Twitter from her personal account.

A screenshot of an account alert says that Twitter has temporarily limited some of her account features, for violating the site’s rules, meaning that the Georgia representative cannot tweet, retweet, or like posts.

The ban lasts twelve hours and will be removed at around lunchtime on Friday. It does not appear to include Ms Greene’s congressional Twitter account.

A spokesperson for Ms Greene confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that the lawmaker is locked out of her Twitter account.

It is unclear what specific tweets led to the suspension.

The move comes as 72 House Democrats have co-sponsored Representative Jimmy Gomez’s resolution to expel Ms Greene from Congress, which he introduced to the house on Friday morning.

“I take no joy in introducing this resolution, but any member who cites political violence and threatens our lives must be expelled,” said Mr Gomez.

“I’m not saying this for shock value.”

The resolution would require a two-thirds majority of support from lawmakers in the House to remove Ms Greene from office.

It does not appear to have that level of backing. A spokesperson for Mr Gomes said: “Despite numerous efforts to reach out to House Republicans – and quite a few conversations – none of them were willing to publicly support the resolution at this time.”

This is not the first time Ms Green has been suspended from the social media platform. In January she was suspended for 12 hours for a tweet telling Trump supporters to “mobilize”.

A Twitter spokesperson at the time told NPR that Ms Greene had been temporarily locked out for “multiple violations of our civic integrity policy”.

Ms Greene has been pictured wearing face masks bearing the words “Free Speech” and “Censored” yet maintains a second Twitter account, and has a presence on Facebook, Gab, Telegram, and Parler.

As an elected member of Congress she is also free to speak on the floor of the House and recently appeared on Steve Bannon’s podcast.
