Elon Musk began hunting down accounts that impersonate other people in Twitter and that they don’t have the label “parody”.

According to the tycoon who owns the social network, Twitter will permanently ban impersonators’ accounts without notice unless they know they are humor accounts.


“In the future, any user Twitter Participation in phishing without a clear indication of “parody” will be permanently suspended,” Musk said.

“We used to send a warning before the suspension, but now that we are doing a general review, there will be no warning. This will be clearly marked as a condition of registration on Twitter Blue.

Interestingly, even before this announcement, Twitter started to deactivate a number of accounts in which users changed their profile name to “Elon Musk” protesting a billionaire businessman’s plan to overhaul the verification system and start charging $8.

The most significant case was with actress and comedian Kathy Griffin, whose account is now suspended. In addition to changing her name and photo, she wrote: “After many animated discussions with the women in my life, I have decided that voting for your choice is the right thing to do.”

“We’re not all Elon Musk…because he blocked those accounts,” Roswell actor Brendan Fehr tweeted. “But don’t worry, it’s still perfectly normal for someone to tweet irresponsible lies and conspiracies, so it’s all right and makes sense.”

Before Musk closed the acquisition Twitter On October 28, for $44 billion, the social network’s rules state that users “may not impersonate a person, group, or organization to deceive, confuse, or mislead others, or use a false identity in a way that interferes with the experience of others in Twitter”.

pending changes

Several posts on Sunday said that Twitter confirmed that it is suspending the rollout of account checks associated with Twitter Blue until after the US midterm elections.

The blue tick check used to be reserved for public figures such as politicians and celebrities who were more likely to pose as bad actors. Musk now plans to make the tick available to anyone who pays $7.99 a month for Twitter Blue.

“My commitment to free speech even extends to not blocking an account that follows my plane, even though this is a direct risk to personal safety,” he defends. Elon Musk about reviews.
