Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was suspended by Twitter for 12 hours not long after she told Trump supporters to 'mobilize' in a deleted tweet
  • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia known for her promotion of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, was suspended by Twitter for 12 hours, her office said in a statement.
  • Twitter confirmed to Insider that Greene had been temporarily "locked out" from the account, citing violations of its civic integrity policy.
  • On Saturday, Greene tweeted a message that said, in part, Trump supporters should "mobilize and make your voices heard in opposition to these attacks on our liberties."
  • Social-media platforms, including Twitter, have cracked down on accounts that spread misinformation and encourage violence following a deadly insurrection by pro-Trump rioters at the US Capitol on January 6, angering conservatives.
Greene is known for espousing views in line with QAnon, the baseless, far-right conspiracy theory that has gained prominence among some Republicans, though Greene was the first person elected to Congress to publicly support the theory. In an interview with Fox News in August, Greene said she decided to "choose another path" after she found "misinformation" within the QAnon community, as Insider's Rachel E. Greenspan previously noted.

In a scathing op-ed published in The Atlantic Sunday, Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican, blasted Greene and members of his party for pandering to those who believe the nonsense theory, centered around the belief that Trump is fighting a "deep state" cabal of satanic pedophiles.

"The newly elected Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs," Sasse wrote in The Atlantic.
