Twitter suspends Medikal’s account

Tech company Twitter has suspended the account of rapper Medikal for violating its policy against impersonation.

After making a few tweaks to his public profile, his account was suspended on Tuesday night for impersonating President Akufo-Addo.


Medikal kept his handle @AMGMedikal but changed his username to Mr. President and his avatar to that of President Akufo-Addo.

It would be recalled that on Sunday, November 6, the new owner of the platform, Elon Musk issued a warning in a tweet that Twitter will permanently suspend accounts that impersonates other accounts.

Musk issued the warning after some celebrities changed their Twitter display names—not their account names—and tweeted as "Elon Musk" in response to decision to offer verified accounts to all comers for $8 per month while he simultaneously laid off a significant portion of the workforce.

He tweeted on Nov.6 ; "Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying 'parody' will be permanently suspended," Musk wrote. While Twitter previously issued warnings before suspensions, now that it is rolling out "widespread verification, there will be no warning."

Medikal’s account is still suspended and it is unclear how soon it would be restored.
