Twitter Inc’s new CEO Elon Musk said on Sunday that Twitter druggies engaging in impersonation without easily specifying it as a “parody” account will be permanently suspended without a warning.
In a separate tweet, Musk said Twitter preliminarily issued a warning before suspense, but as Twitter is rolling out wide verification, there will be no warning as well as “no exceptions”.
“This will be easily linked as a condition for subscribing up to Twitter Blue,” Musk said, adding any name change at all will beget a temporary loss of the vindicated checkmark.

This will be clearly identified as a condition for signing up to Twitter Blue.
Twitter on Saturday streamlined its app in Apple’s App Store to begin charging$ 8 for sought-after blue check verification marks, in Musk’s first major modification of the social media platform.
Tesla Inc master Musk, who also will serve as principal superintendent of Twitter, last month said Twitter will be forming a content temperance council with “extensively different shoes”.
“No major content opinions or account reinstatements will be before that council convenes,” he added.
On the content of banned accounts, Musk last week said they won’t be allowed back onto Twitter until the social media platform has “a clear process for doing so”.
Creating such a process would take at least many further weeks, Musk had twittered, giving further clarity about the implicit return of Twitter’s most notorious banned stoner, former US President Donald Trump. The new timeline implies Trump won’t return in time for the quiz choices on Nov 8.
before on Sunday, the New York Times reported Twitter is delaying the rollout of verification check marks to subscribers of its new service until after Tuesday’s quiz choices.
Musk’s vision sparks debate
Musk on Sunday also said the social media platform’s charge was to come to the most accurate source of information about the world, sparking debate about how it would achieve that and who determines what’s accurate.
A flurry of drastic measures including sacking half the staff and charging druggies that Musk has taken since he took over Twitter in a $44 billion deal just about a week ago has handed some early suggestions to how the platform will be reshaped by the world’s richest person.
Some advertisers have pulled spending since the deal was blazoned, with Musk condemning activist groups for obliging advertisers amid enterprises about its content temperance.

“Twitter needs to come by far the most accurate source of information about the world. That’s our charge,” Musk said on Sunday.
His tweet incontinently touched off knockouts of thousands of replies and provoked lively debates on how the charge will be achieved.
“Accurate to who?” Twitter author and former CEO Jack Dorsey asked.

Twitter asks some fired workers to return
In a sign of further confusion after Musk’s preemption, Twitter is now reaching out to dozens of workers who lost their jobs and asking them to return, Bloomberg News reported on Sunday.
Some of those who are being asked to return was laid off by mistake. Others were let go before the operation realised that their work and experience may be necessary to make the new features Musk envisions, the report said citing people familiar with the moves.
Twitter didn’t incontinently respond to Reuters ’ request for comment about the rehiring sweats.
