Elon Musk’s latest MAJOR change on Twitter gets Kathy Griffin suspended, then he savagely trolls her

“Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator” Elon Musk announced in a series of tweets Sunday that Twitter will suspend without warning any account that impersonates another unless they’re labeled “parody.”

The action coming after left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin saw her Twitter account suspended for changing her name to “Elon Musk” and copying his profile picture — she then mocked the new Twitter boss in a tweet advocating for the Democratic Party: “After much spirited discussion with the females in my life, I’ve decided that voting blue for their choice is only right. (They’re also sexy females, btw.) #VoteBlueToProtectWomen.”

“Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended, Musk tweeted.

“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,” he said in a follow up, adding, “Any name change at all will cause temporary loss of verified checkmark.”

In what was aptly described as “savage,” Musk would respond in a series of tweets to the suspension with his trademark humor.

“Actually she was suspended for impersonating a comedian,” the Tesla CEO tweeted. “But if she really wants her account back, she can have it. For $8.”

As it is, the blue check elite is up in arms over Musk leveling the playing field for all users by launching an $8 monthly subscription fee that includes official verification.

Griffin was far from alone in seeking to cause havoc on the Twitter platform by impersonating Musk — another tactic being deployed by activists on the left is to target Twitter advertisers.

Comedian Sarah Silverman got in on the Musk impersonation game, tweeting under his name, “I am a freedom of speech absolutist and I eat doody for breakfast every day.”

Actress Valerie Bertinelli would also take part in what turned out to be a thing: Taking exception to commoners having the ability to acquire a blue check, Bertinelli would tweet support for Democratic candidates under the billionaire’s name.

Former NFL punter Chris Kluwe reportedly had his verified account suspended when he impersonated Musk.

Musk clarified that he’s no thin-skinned liberal elitist, informing Twitter-dom that they can trash him at will — for the tidy sum of $8 per month.

In addition, the apparently orchestrated chaos with a cause was not limited to the impersonation of Elon Musk alone, as seen here:
