Far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia's personal Twitter account was recently banned for repeatedly breaking the company's policy against promoting disinformation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed over 800 thousand Americans.

Greene predictably claimed Twitter—a private entity—was infringing on her right to free speech. She called it an "enemy to America" that must be destroyed.

Former President Donald Trump—who was himself banned from Twitter after his lies about the 2020 election incited a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol—issued a statement supporting Greene, and calling for his supporters to leave Twitter and Facebook.

Trump wrote:

"Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn't be allowed to do business in this Country. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don't deserve what's happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook. Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook. They're boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our Nation. Keep fighting, Marjorie!"

It's worth noting that Trump himself is preparing the launch of a conservative social media outlet, Truth Social, in which Greene has invested more than $15 thousand. A mass exodus of conservatives from mainstream social media outlets could be a lucrative development for both.

What's more, the idea that Facebook censors conservatives isn't supported by actual data. As recently as December 21, eight out of 10 of Facebook's most-viewed political posts were from right-leaning pages.

Nevertheless, Trump's critics encouraged his supporters to heed his demand.

Some conservatives did vow to obey.

It's unclear if Trump's most loyal supporters in Congress will voluntarily delete their accounts.
