Twitter has restricted the congressional account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after she shared a notice for an upcoming rally, called the “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

On her personal Twitter account, Greene shared a screenshot that showed how she is being banned for seven days for having violated Twitter’s rules on “violent speech.”

The move to restrict Greene’s congressional account came after she shared an image of a poster of the upcoming rally. In the same post, shared on Tuesday, Greene alleged that Antifa was organizing the “Trans Day of Vengeance” event. Twitter subsequently locked Greene out of her account on the condition that she deleted her offending tweet.

The online kerfuffle comes a day after six people, three of whom were 9-year-old children, died in a shooting on Monday at a Christian school in Nashville. The suspect, who was killed during the incident, had identified as transgender.

When her congressional account was restored, Greene issued another post from the account. “My Congressional Twitter account was suspended today,” the post said. “@elonmusk, how is it ‘violent speech’ to expose the ‘Trans Day of Vengence’ [sic] a day after a mass murder committed by a transgender shooter? And to call on the DOJ to investigate it? I condemned the incitement to violence & demanded a federal law enforcement investigation in the Tweet.”

The post had since been deleted because it featured the poster of the upcoming rally again. Following that post, Greene’s congressional account was suspended for seven days.

Twitter’s head of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, said on Twitter that the company was removing images of the poster over concerns it could incite violence.

“We had to automatically sweep our platform and remove >5000 tweets /retweets of this [‘Trans Day of Vengeance’] poster,” Irwin wrote. “We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok.”

Irwin also wrote that the platform has “not applied any strikes to anyone” and had “[j]ust restricted the media.”
