Elon Musk bans Twitter accounts that impersonate others – as comedian falls victim to new rule

Elon Musk says Twitter will permanently suspend any account that impersonates another – unless it clearly states it is a “parody”.

The social media platform’s new owner issued the warning after some celebrities changed their Twitter display names – not their account names – to “Elon Musk” in reaction to the billionaire’s decision to offer verified accounts to all users for $8 month.
