(PresidentialInsider.com)- Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the controversial Republican politician stripped of her committee assignments over her past promotion of various Q-Anon-related conspiracy theories, was recently gagged by far-left social media platform Twitter…but now they claim it was just a mistake.
Last Friday, Rep. Greene’s Twitter account was suspended at around 1 a.m., and the Georgia politician said that it was done “without explanation.” Greene then published a screengrab of the suspension on Telegram, an alternative social media and message program, along with a message expressing her suspicions about the ban.
Representatives of Greene’s office suggested that the timing was suspicious, coming only hours before Democratic California Representative Jimmy Gomez introduced a resolution to remove Green from Congress.
Greene was previously banned from the platform back in January after breaking their “civic integrity policy” – a policy that stops anybody from publishing information about issues like COVID-19 that goes against the narrative Twitter prefers.
But this time, the social media platform claims that the suspension was actually just an error.
“I was just told “Twitter suspended me for 12 hrs in ‘error,’ on the same day Dems introduced a resolution to expel me from Congress,” Green said, sarcastically describing it as a “coincidence.”
I was just told @Twitter suspended me for 12 hrs in “error,” on the same day Dems introduced a resolution to expel me from Congress.
What a coincidence?
Twitter’s little error wasn’t resolved until after 12 hrs.@jack which employee made the “error?”

A spokesperson for Twitter said that it occurred as a result of its automated systems making a mistake.
“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. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated,” the spokesperson claimed.
Greene’s office told the press that they attempted to address the issue with Twitter at 1 am, and then again the following morning, but didn’t hear back from the platform until Friday afternoon when the ban was lifted.
