Twitter notified the congressional lawmaker that they temporarily limited some of her account features for violating the rules.

The ‘Trans Day of Vengeance,’ according to the, or TRAN, is scheduled to take place on April 1 in front of the Supreme Court.

According to reports, Twitter limited Greene to only being able to send direct messages to her followers. She was not permitted to tweet, retweet, follow or like posts.

“Restore my account immediately,” Greene tweeted on her personal account in response.
