Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is back on the Twitter scene and she came back with her guns blazing on Monday.
Greene’s personal Twitter account was permanently suspended in January of 2022 after she repeatedly violated the social platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy. After nearly a year off of the platform, her personal account was reinstated under the new ownership of Twitter by Elon Musk.
Greene’s official congressional Twitter account remained active, which is where she tweeted first to let the Twitterverse know she was back.
“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 & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation’. My account is back.Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”, her tweet read.

The specific tweet that had her removed isn’t clear but it was likely due to her sharing information such as the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, the harm that can be caused by masking children and the efficacy of Ivermectin to name of few. Ironically, we now know that these are not disinformation but rather information that the Big Pharma-funded government would rather you didn’t know.
Her first line of business on her newly-activated personal account was to address her followers in a video tweet that lasted one hour and 14 minutes. In that video, in typical MTG fashion, she called out Big Tech, Hillary Clinton, the hypocrisy of George Floyd’s death, advocated for free speech and questioned why it took a billionaire buying Twitter to get her back on the platform.

Her reinstatement follows the reactivation of former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account which was reinstated after Musk held a poll asking users to vote “yes” or “no” on whether his account should be restored last Friday. The results were 51.8% “yes” with over 15 million users voting in the poll. As of Nov. 22, Trump has remained off the platform and silent about his account reactivation.
