(CNN Business) Twitter (TWTR) has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for one week following another violation of the platform's rules, the company said Tuesday.

The account will be in read-only mode for a week due to repeated violations of the Twitter Rules.".

Tuesday's suspension marks at least the third and toughest penalty Twitter has imposed on Greene for sharing misinformation.

In July, Twitter suspended Greene again for 12 hours for sharing misinformation about Covid-19 and vaccines.

(Greene was also temporarily suspended in March but was soon reinstated after Twitter said its automated systems had acted in error.). »
