QAnon-supporting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from her Twitter account for 12 hours, her staff announced Sunday.

Greene slammed the social media platform for locking her out of her account ‘without an explanation’, while bashing the company’s ‘attack to chill free speech in America’ by kicking President Donald Trump off the website. 

Twitter said she was suspended for ‘multiple violations’ of its civic integrity policy, but it’s not clear which tweets specifically she got in trouble for.  

‘Just days after the Silicon Valley Cartel launched a multi-front attack to chill free speech in America by deplatforming President Donald Trump and purging an unknown number of conservatives, Twitter has decided to suspend my personal account without explanation,’ Green said in a statement shared by her staff.

In her last few posts on Twitter she spouted unfounded conspiracy theories alleging voter fraud in the Georgia electtion to her 265,000 followers. 

Twitter had flagged her posts with a warning about election misinformation. 

Twitter’s temporary suspension of Greene comes after it suspended 70,000 Twitter accounts connected to the QAnon believers, as well as prominent rightwing pundits and President Donald Trump. 

In the Sunday statement Greene’s staff shared she slammed the ‘monopolistic stranglehold’ big tech companies have.

‘If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of “inciting violence” simply for having a conservative view,’ she said.

‘Americans rights are being stripped away and they aren’t being heard by the people they elected to represent them. And with Big Tech silencing them, they literally can’t be heard,’ the statement added.
