Twitter appears to have limited certain tweets from the official account of representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, after the Georgia Republican made unfounded claims about the Nashville school shooting being a product of “Antifa” and “trans-terrorism.”.
Ms Greene shared a screenshot from her personal account, showing a notice from Twitter describing how it had temporarily limited her access to the site for violating its rules.
Audrey Hale, the gunman in the Nashville shooting, was reportedly a transgender man who used he/him pronouns.
Police have not described any link between Hale and antifa, or between Hale’s gender identity and the violence in Nashville.
In a reply to Ms Greene, Twitter spokesperson Ella Irwin confirmed that the some of the Republican’s media had been “restricted,” according to Mediaite.
Tsukuru Fors, co-founder of the Trans Radical Activist Network, told a socialist website, “We are calling for Trans Day of Vengeance, instead of Trans Day of Visibility, because ‘visibility’ alone is no longer enough.”.
Ms Greene, who has proposed federal legislation to outlaw gender-affirming care for trans youth, was among them. »
