The company’s new chief executive officer, Elon Musk, disclosed this in a series of tweets on Monday.

The chief Twit, as he calls himself, stated that the suspension would come without warning, following the rollout of widespread verification on the platform.

Musk said, “Going forward, any handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended,” the tweet reads.

“Previously, we issued a warning before the 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 for Blue.

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

Reassuring users of 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.”

Also, Justifying the $8 monthly fee for the blue checkmark, Musk said widespread verification would “democratize journalism and empower the voice of the people.”
