After the platform’s wide implementation of widespread verification, according to The Chief Twit, the suspension would occur without prior notice.

MUSK SAID:

“Any Twitter accounts that impersonate others in the future without explicitly stating that they are parodying someone else will be permanently suspended.

“In the past, we would offer a notice prior to suspension; but, now that we are implementing extensive verification, there won’t be a warning.

“This will be made very evident as a requirement for signing up to Twitter Blue.”

He added that change on the name of any verified account will lead to temporary loss of the checkmark.

“Any name change at all will cause temporary loss of verified checkmark,” Musk added.

Reassuring users on his commitment to free speech, Musk stated,

“My commitment to free speech extends even to not banning the account following my plane, even though that is a direct personal safety risk.”
