Twitter on Sunday briefly suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for the second time in little more than two weeks.
The social media platform said in a statement Taylor Greene's account was locked mistakenly, due to a technical glitch.
"[An automated system] took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated," a Twitter spokesperson told Mediaite.
Taylor Greene, R-Ga., took to the Twitter alternative site Gab to suggest her latest ban might have been due to a tweet in which she wished her followers a Happy Easter.
Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen!
"After tweeting, 'He is risen! Happy Easter!' I was suspended this morning for 12 hours!" Greene wrote on Gab. "Was it my Christian faith?"
Taylor Greene also suggested the suspension might have been the result of her "willingness to Fire Fauci."
"Message to Big Tech," she wrote. "I’LL NEVER STOP!!!"
Twitter previously suspended Taylor Greene’s account in January for spreading misinformation about the election.
Then on March 19, Twitter mistakenly suspended Greene again "in error."
"We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service," a Twitter representative said at the time. "In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been restored."
Taylor Greene compared her March suspension to a person being wrongly convicted on Newsmax TV’s "National Report."
"My account was suspended for 12 hours and served the full 12 hours," Greene said. "So that's like being convicted and serving prison time when you never did anything wrong and serving the full sentence."
Taylor Greene, serving her first House term, won Georgia’s 14th Congressional district unopposed. She was removed by Democrats from her committee for her public statements and supposed threats – including a Facebook page posing with an AR-15 rifle and a collage of the members of the liberal “Squad.”
Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., filed a resolution to expel Taylor Greene from the House.
"It would be very foolish for anyone in Congress to expel me when I have done absolutely nothing wrong," Greene said on "National Report."
"And if Democrats and Republicans join together to have me expelled for doing nothing wrong, for a few comments on social media, then this is a real precedent that the American people will not stand for, and my district would just reelect me and send me back, so their effort will fail."
Taylor Greene told "Greg Kelly Reports" she didn’t care politicians on both sides of the isle have shunted her.
"Here in the District of Communism, is what I call it, I get the cultural version of dirty looks all the time and I couldn’t care less because the people up here, in this military state, with our big border wall, with razor wire around the capitol complex, nobody here voted for me and put me in Congress, it’s the people back home that did that and that’s where the real America is," Taylor Greene said.
"You see, D.C. is like a big bubble. It’s a beltway. And they’re so disconnected from real people. They don’t understand that people don’t want be forced to walk around wearing these masks. A lot of these paper masks it’s like putting a napkin on your face and wrapping rubber bands around your ears."
