Twitter suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., on Monday after a pair of posts about COVID-19 that the company said violated its misinformation policy.
Greene, who has compared mask mandates at the U.S. Capitol to the Holocaust and was suspended from Twitter earlier this year for making false claims about voter fraud, will be locked out of the social media platform for 12 hours.

In the tweets, posted Sunday and Monday, Greene made unsubstantiated claims about COVID-19 and the vaccination effort.
In March, Twitter announced a “strike system” for users spreading false and misleading COVID-19 information. A user’s account is locked for 12 hours after two or three strikes, and seven days after four strikes. After five strikes, the user is banned.
