Twitter reinstated Marjorie Taylor Green’s personal account, and the left reacted as you’d expect – RedState

Just days after reinstating former President Donald Trump on the platform, Twitter has reinstated the personal account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). As you may have guessed, the left is already whining about it.

Under his previous leadership, the social media company banned Green’s personal account for violating its COVID-19 misinformation policy. However, he was still allowed to tweet from his official account.

On Monday, Greene posted a tweet celebrating the lifting of the ban and urged his followers to start following him on his personal account:

I am the only unelected member of Congress to be permanently banned from the big tech oligarchs.

On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign and fundraise for “covid disinformation.”

My account is back.

It’s the latest in a series of high-profile, previously banned accounts that Twitter CEO Elon Musk has reinstated. As you can imagine, there was a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth coming from people on the left side of the political spectrum.

Mike Sington, CEO of NBC Universal, wrote on Twitter: “The craziness is coming back to Twitter. Marjorie Taylor Greene has restored her personal account.”

Max Burns of the Daily Beast argued that this is another indication that Twitter is leaning toward the Republican Party:

BREAKING: @elonmusk restores insurgent Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account as Twitter continues its sharp turn to the @GOP.

Eric Hananoki of Media Matters referred to Green as “the Parkland conspiracy theorist”. He wrote:

Sandy Hook and Parkland conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene…who is also a regular on Alex Jones’ show, has reinstated her personal Twitter account.

Musk has come under fire for restoring the accounts of controversial individuals. Shortly after taking over the company, he announced that he did not believe in “lifetime bans,” shocking the censorship hard-left.

The CEO also announced that the company will create a content moderation board to help update its terms of service enforcement. He also assured advertisers that while he wants to promote free speech on the platform, it won’t turn into a “free-for-all hellscape.”

Twitter has yet to provide specifics on how it will handle content moderation. But despite the concerns of some, it’s another indication that the biased censorship seen before his rise to power may be a thing of the past.
