Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia known for her promotion of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, was suspended by Twitter for 12 hours, her office said in a statement.




Twitter confirmed to Insider that Greene had been temporarily "locked out" from the account, citing violations of its civic integrity policy.




On Saturday, Greene tweeted a message that said, in part, Trump supporters should "mobilize and make your voices heard in opposition to these attacks on our liberties."




Social-media platforms, including Twitter, have cracked down on accounts that spread misinformation and encourage violence following a deadly insurrection by pro-Trump rioters at the US Capitol on January 6, angering conservatives.
