Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.6

Comedian Kathy Griffin’s Twitter account was suspended on Sunday as she changed her profile name to “Elon Musk,” which goes against Twitter policy on impersonation. On Sunday night, Elon Musk wrote, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.” He continued, “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.”
