Twitter on Sunday permanently suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's personal account with nearly a half million followers, alleging she violated the company’s rules on COVID-19 information.

The following message appeared on her @mtgreene account: “Account suspended. Twitter suspends accounts that violate Twitter rules.”

A company spokesman confirmed to CNN the account was permanently suspended "for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy."

Greene, a freshman Republican for Georgia, did not immediately issue a statement after Twitter’s action. Her official congressional account remained operational midday Sunday.
