Twitter suspends users for imitating Elon Musk in early test of his free speech stance

The comedian Kathy Griffin, YouTube personality Ethan Klein and “Mad Men” actor Rich Sommer each say their Twitter accounts were suspended over the weekend after they impersonated Musk, changing their display names and profile photos to match those of the billionaire.

The decisions to lock all three out of their Twitter accounts come as Musk, a self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist,” draws intense scrutiny for how he handles speech issues on the platform. He has pledged to make the service a destination for accurate information, but has also suggested he may loosen the platform’s rules.
