"With Big Tech silencing them, they literally can't be heard".

The 46-year-old businesswoman and political newcomer was elected to represent Georgia's 14th District in November.

Those came into play via a thread of tweets during the Georgia Senate elections which were slapped with a Twitter warning: "This claim about election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can't be replied to, retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence". "They shouldn't have to fear being cancelled by American corporations where they work, do business, and use services", she said.

Social media platform Parler has been shut down by Amazon, which hosted its servers, because it was used to help plan last week's attack on the U.S. Capitol. The social media company temporarily banned the Republican congresswoman for allegedly spreading misinformation.

Taylor Greene's temporary suspension comes as Twitter attempts to crack down on disinformation and the incitement of violence on its platform.

The first four paragraphs of Greene's statement, posted on her Twitter account Saturday evening, blame "Communist ANTIFA terrorists", "Marxist BLM", and other leftist groups for "caus [ing] billions of dollars of damage to private property, historical statues and monuments, government buildings", and "the deaths of at least 47 Americans".

As of January 12, Twitter had also suspended more than 70,000 accounts associated with QAnon as it attempted to rein in harmful activity ahead of the presidential inauguration.

"We've been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm", Twitter said.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Greene's suspension.

Greene urged Congress to "act to protect free speech" in her statement.
