The hits just seem to keep coming from Twitter and its new czar, billionaire Elon Musk. Now, Twitter CEO Elon Musk overruled the hall monitors who want to censor speech and, after an over 11-month Twitter ban, restored U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) personal account on the social media platform. MGT is only the latest in a long string of accounts that include Megan Murphy and of course, Donald Trump.

It is now being reported by Axios that:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) personal Twitter account was reinstated on the platform on Monday, more than 10 months after being permanently suspended for “repeated violations” of the platform’s COVID misinformation policy.

Driving the news: The move comes days after Twitter reinstated the account of former President Trump and amid a season of upheaval at the platform that has accompanied Elon Musk’s takeover of the company.

The big picture: Greene’s account had also been suspended in July 2021 for publishing incorrect information on COVID vaccinations and wearing face masks during the pandemic.

  • While Greene had lost access to her more frequently used personal account, she had maintained access to her official congressional account.

What they’re saying: “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,'” Greene tweeted on Monday from her congressional account.

  • “My account is back. Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)” she added.
  • Greene has not yet tweeted from her reinstated personal account.

It was further reported by The Hill that:

Using her official congressional account, which was not banned by the platform, Greene urged her followers to head to her newly reinstated “unfiltered” personal account.

Trump regained access to his account on Saturday, after Musk posted a poll on Twitter asking users if the platform should reinstate the former president. Trump was banned by Twitter after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, when the platform determined his posts posed the risk of further incitement of violence. 

The Hill went on to report that:

Under Musk, Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, was also given access to his account after previously being suspended for making antisemitic comments. 

Leaders of civil rights and other advocacy groups slammed Musk over his decision to reinstate banned accounts, namely Trump’s, especially after Musk had said there would be a transparent process to determine if accounts are reinstated through a content moderation council that would include civil rights activists. 

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, tweeted that Musk’s decisions over the last month have been “erratic and alarming,” but the decision to reinstate Trump is “dangerous and a threat to American democracy.”

“We need to ask — is it time for Twitter to go?” he tweeted. 

Musk responded, “Hey stop defaming me!” but did not offer any direct response as to the decision to reinstate Trump’s account without the council promise he proposed just weeks ago.

Marjorie Taylor Green is certainly no stranger to controversy. In fact, The Raging Patriot reported around the end of last year that

 Green on Thursday called out the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell “Biden’s Bitch” for supporting Senate Democrats on raising the debt ceiling.

“The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION. Mitch is Biden’s bitch.” She wrote on Twitter

The bill in question here was aimed at keeping the government from defaulting its debt was passed by the Senate on Thursday with a 50-49 vote.

Greene’s tweet has received more than 20,000 likes and over 6000 retweets as of right now. Leader McConnell has not yet responded to Rep. MTG’s Tweet as of publishing this article.
