After Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) accused Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of attempted murder on Twitter, a serious allegation, the platform has remained silent.

AOC has reportedly demanded Cruz resign for challenging the Electoral College certification of Joe Biden votes.

She also rejected Cruz's olive branch after agreeing to congressional hearings into the stock trading app Robinhood's decision to block purchases of stock in companies like GameStop.

Ocasio-Cortez told Cruz:

"I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.

"Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.

"In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign," she added.

But AOC received backlash for her rhetoric.

Twitter was challenged by the conservative Media Research Center (MRC) to take action against Ocasio-Cortez and highlighted the platform after it permanently suspended Donald Trump earlier his month.

"A deranged Member of Congress accusing a US Senator of attempted murder? If Trump had lied like this, you would have shut him down," MRC reacted.

Conservative commentator Stephen Miller tried out Twitter's new community fact-checking initiative "Birdwatch" by reporting AOC for a "Misleading or potentially misleading" tweet.

"Ted Cruz did not attempt to have Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez murdered," Miller asserted.

Ocasio-Cortez was also accused of libel" and incitement of violence against the senator.

"Louder with Crowder" host Steve Crowder wrote.

"I’m not saying this tweet is an attempt to incite violence against a sitting Senator. But a claim like that requires proof or it’s verifiable libel. You clearly see yourself as above the law."

"@TwitterSafety I'd like to report this tweet. @AOC accusing a sitting senator of attempted murder...can we at least get a fact check?"

"This type of accusation is not only subject to libel, it makes a lot of ppl feel unsafe. What if she's inciting retaliation against @SenTedCruz?" RedState editor-at-large Kira Davis asked.

"I support @tedcruz filing a lawsuit for this libel. I support Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be investigated for incitement against Senator Cruz and irresponsibly spreading conspiracy and hateful rhetoric. This behavior should not be tolerated in Congress," author Chad Felix Greene tweeted.

A spokesperson for Twitter responded by saying, "We've no comment on this."
