Kathy Griffin suspended from Twitter for impersonating Elon Musk

The comedian was banned from Twitter after she changed her display name to "Elon Musk" and therefore violated the rules surrounding impersonation. Earlier that evening, the tech billionaire - who officially became the owner of Twitter last month - issued a warning about impersonation. "Previously, we issued a warning before suspension, but now that we are rolling out widespread verification, there will be no warning... Any name change at all will cause temporary loss of verified checkmark." Elon Musk / Twitter.
