Microblogging site, Twitter has suspended the account of American comedian, Kathy Griffin for impersonating the company's new CEO, Elon Musk.

The 62-year-old changed her profile name to Musk to mimic the Twitter owner after which she flaunted her account’s new look by urging users to #VoteBlue and check out Twitter competitor, Mastodon.

“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 s3xy females, btw.) #VoteBlueToProtectWomen,” Griffin tweeted.

The suspension came after Musk indicated he was taking his "Chief Tweet" role seriously as he addressed fake accounts just weeks after officially acquiring Twitter for $44 billion.

"Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended,"
he wrote Sunday night.

"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."


Musk is launching an $8 monthly subscription service where any Twitter user may be able to easily attain a blue checkmark symbol.
