Twitter Impersonators to be Suspended Permanently, Musk Says

Twitter Impersonators to be Suspended Permanently

Parody Account will be Permanently Terminated

Elon Musk, the newly appointed CEO of Twitter Inc., stated on Sunday that accounts that employ impersonation without clearly identifying it as a “parody” account will be permanently terminated without notice. 

Musk claimed in a different tweet that while Twitter has previously offered a notice prior to suspension, there will be “no exceptions” now that extensive verification is being implemented. 

Requirement for Joining Twitter Blue

Any name change will result in a temporary loss of the verified checkmark, Musk added, adding that this will be made clear as a requirement for joining Twitter Blue. 

On Elon Musk’s first significant change to the social media site, Twitter updated its app in the Apple App Store on Saturday and started charging $8 for coveted blue check verification marks.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc. and the new CEO of Twitter, announced last month that the latter will create a content moderation council with “widely different opinions.” 

Before that council meets, “no significant content choices or account reinstatements will happen,” he continued. 

Banned Accounts Won’t be Permitted to Return to Twitter

Musk stated last week that banned accounts won’t be permitted to return to Twitter unless the social media site has “a defined method for doing so.” 

Musk had tweeted more information regarding the prospective return of Twitter’s most famous banned user, former US President Donald Trump, saying that developing such a method would take at least a few more weeks.
