Twitter suspended a personal account for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after “repeated violations” of the Covid-19 misinformation policy, the company said Sunday.

Greene, R-Ga., appears to still have access to her professional account, @RepMTG, and it’s unclear what she tweeted to earn a permanent suspension. Her office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

Twitter’s policy was enacted in March last year, implementing a strike system for violations. A single strike may not incur an action, but the company will place lock’s on an account that repeatedly violates the policy.

Five or more strikes will result in a permanent suspension, according to the company’s website.
