On November 26, Georgia’s outspoken Republican Marjorie Taylor-Greene gave her state residents an early glimpse of how she plans to serve them after their recent re-election – by leading a Congressional Oversight investigation into why she and other divisive and controversial figures were banned from the state became Twitter platform of content moderators.

Following a call for Twitter’s new owner – Elon Musk – to provide details of internal discussions that led to figures such as MTG, former one-year President Donald Trump and rapper Ye (formerly Kanye West) being banned from the platform, Taylor – Greene used her newly created personal account to invite Musk to a congressional oversight hearing to investigate the matter.

Is this a priority for residents of Georgia?

Whether understanding why it was banned is really a priority for Georgians who voted for MTG is unclear. It seems clear to most that she was banned for violating content guidelines after repeatedly using the platform to spread divisive opinions and misinformation.

Since being reinstated, she seems to have picked up right where she left off, using her personal account for a variety of questionable posts.

Within 24 hours of the account coming back online, she posted an hour-long livestream urging donors to help her pay a $700,000 court bill.

MTG reinstated in supervisory bodies

As Taylor-Greene campaigned for re-election ahead of the midterms, it emerged that if re-elected, she would be eligible for re-election to the Congressional Oversight Committees.

Kevin McCarthy – then-chairman of the Republican House of Representatives – had confirmed that MTG could be reinstated on condition of being elected to the role after she was stripped of all committee appointments in February this year for alleged violence against certain Members of Congress endorsed.

Now that she’s secured a new term in office, it seems clear how MTG intends to use her newfound responsibility and power – to focus the public’s attention on her pet projects and personal priorities, including securing the right to say what she wants, over whom and whatever she chooses without fear of consequences.

While this is the essence of free speech, it is a great responsibility. Some would argue that personally sponsoring a witch hunt to find out who approved the suspension of her personal account from Twitter is not what she was elected to office for – particularly the Georgians who elected her to power to see their to represent the district.

It remains to be seen whether the relevant documents will be released to support the investigation by Twitter.
