Elon Musk stated on Sunday that anyone using a parody account on Twitter who engages in impersonation without making it obvious that it is one will have their account permanently suspended without notice.

Elon Musk claimed in a different tweet that while Twitter had previously offered a notice prior to suspension, there will be “no exceptions” now that broad verification is being implemented.

Elon Musk stated that this will be made clear as a requirement for joining Twitter Blue and that any name change would result in a temporary loss of the verified checkmark.

In Elon Musk’s first significant update to the social media site, Twitter updated its app on Saturday and started charging $8 for coveted blue check verification marks.

Mr. Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc. and the new CEO of Twitter, announced last month that the latter will create a content moderation council with “widely diverse viewpoints.”

“No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes,” he added.

Mr. Musk stated last week that banned accounts won’t be let back on Twitter unless the social media site has “a clear method for doing so.”

Elon Musk had tweeted more information concerning the prospective return of Twitter’s most well-known banned user, former US President Donald Trump, saying that developing such a method would take at least a few more weeks. The new schedule suggests that Mr. Trump won’t be back in time for the Nov. 8 midterm elections.

The New York Times had earlier on Sunday claimed that Twitter would not begin rolling out verification checkmarks to users of its new service until after Tuesday’s midterm elections.
