“Twitter said Monday that it had suspended the account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for 12 hours. The social media platform suspended the outspoken Georgia Republican around 9 p.m. on Monday for violating its policy after posting misleading two tweets about COVID-19. In two tweets posted Sunday and Monday, Greene said that the coronavirus wasn’t dangerous for people under the age of 65 who are not obese, and said vaccines should not be required. ‘We took enforcement action on the account @mtgreenee for violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically the COVID-19 misleading information policy,’ a Twitter spokesman said in an emailed statement. Greene’s tweets still appear on her Twitter account but with a ‘misleading’ tag.” [editor’s note: For those between 50 and 69, COVID-19 is, in terms of death rates, about as “dangerous” as seasonal flu according to CDC’s “best guess” statistics – TLK] (07/19/21)
