About this new policy
Elon Musk’s Twitter has a new rule for everyone with an account on Twitter to follow, as he announced from his own account: “any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.” In a follow-up tweet, Musk said “Previously, we issued a warning before the suspension, but now that we are rolling out widespread verification, there will be no warning.” It’s a weird update from the person who just a few days ago tweeted, “Comedy is now legal on Twitter” after taking control of the company.
