Twitter to ban accounts impersonating others but not labelled as parody - Elon Musk

Twitter CEO, Elon Musk has said that the social media company will permanently suspend users engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying it as a parody account .


According to Musk, Twitter previously issued a warning before suspending accounts, but henceforth there would now be no warning.

This comes after a number of accounts that changed their names to Elon Musk and mocked the billionaire (following his decision to place an $8 for verification icon on accounts), were suspended or placed behind a warning sign.

Musk took over Twitter late last month and last week laid off around half of the company's workforce.

Detailing the new policy on parody accounts, Musk tweeted on Monday, November 7:

"Previously, we issued a warning before suspension, but now that we are rolling out widespread verification, there will be no warning."


He added that "any name change at all will cause temporary loss of verified checkmark".


Going forward, any Twitter handle engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying “parody” will be permanently suspended


 Musk has previously said he opposed permanent bans on Twitter, including that of Trump's official account. Musk said last week that banned accounts would not be reinstated until there was "a clear process for doing so".
