CEO of Space X and Tesla, Elon Musk introduces Twitter’s new policy of suspending parody accounts that impersonates personal Twitter accounts.

Elon Musk, who recently bought Twitter for $44 billion, stated this via a tweet on Sunday, which stated that users of the app should make use of a disclaimer specifying it as a `parody’ to avoid permanent suspension of the account.

The billionaire also added that there would be no prior warning before suspension as the app operated previously.

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

This will be clearly identified as a condition for signing up to Twitter Blue” Elon Musk continued.

Moreover, he said Twitter verified accounts will temporarily lose their verified checkmarks if they change Twitter usernames, this mostly applies to prominent people or users with mass followership.
