Chipzel, one of the most famous chiptune artists (and video game creators) on the planet, is among the famous users whose Twitter account has been suspended after seemingly infringing, but also not infringing. some new rules.

Musk, who bought the social media platform despite not knowing what to do with it, how to run it, or affordabilitystarted his term last month by celebrating the return of free speechquick to remind everyone that the greatest champions of “freedom of speech” rarely care about any such thing.

One of the big reasons his short reign was unpopular – along with the masses (could be illegal) breakdowns, uncertainty about membership fees paid, and just generally the divorced Guy — was promised to eliminate Twitter’s verification process, which would grant public figures they (and people who work in jobs that are rife with impersonation, like newspapers) have a little blue check mark next to their name. It’s a little thing designed to simply let people know that you really are who you are claiming to be, but for depressing reasons the Free Speech and MAGA freaks spent years trying to haunting them, upgrading an administrative feature to what they think is discriminatory, a digital caste system.

As a result, one of Musk’s first business orders as a Twitter owner was to come up with the idea of ​​replacing the current verification process—a process where Twitter manually verifies people/ your company that you really are you—with… a system where anyone can pay $8 for a blue tick.

Because this is such an incredibly stupid (and dangerous!) used, in clear and obvious examples of what will happen. global scale so the verification process is overhauled this way.

Musk, madness in his head and spent the past few days hanging around like a substitute teacher who lost classsought to cut back on this practice — simply to know what was coming! —of earlier today when he said “In the future, any Twitter that handles impersonation without explicitly specifying “parody” will be permanently suspended.”

Famous Australian website The Chaserrun by political comedians and writers who appear to be among the first victims of this new rule, whose accounts were locked after renaming Musk’s breed, despite apparently having follow this new rule and mark their account as parody (they didn’t even change their name to ‘Elon Musk’, they changed to ‘Elom Musk’).

However, their account was reinstated, with the new name ‘Elon Musk Fondles Dogs’:

They are not alone. Chipzel who is not only a famous chiptune artist but also makes soundtracks for games like Super hexagon and Dicey DungeonsFind Her account is suspended todaypreviously changed her name to ‘🌈elon musk’ parody ”, which again does not break the rules as Musk himself has stated.

What both do seems to violate is a difference rule he hastily put in place shortly after, which is extremely sought to prevent verified users from changing their display name (Tweet will always show two names, one you can edit and your actual Twitter username, which you can’t). In a follow-up Tweet, he said “Any name change will temporarily remove the verified check mark,” due to how often people do this—for everything from sporting events to Halloween to the holiday season—Is extremely funny:

That’s a pretty heavy-handed rule just trying to stop people from mocking you on the internet! Former NFL Athlete (and Kotaku commenter) Chris Kluwe is another verified user that has been suspendedalso changed his profile picture and display name to match Musk’s (along with tweeting some meaningful things about Tesla cars).

If only Twitter had some sort of verification process in place now that could easily sort out which accounts are real and which are fake. Ah good!

It’s strange that all these accounts have been locked out completely, instead of just temporarily losing verification as he clearly stated, but with half of Twitter’s employees were fired and the other half burned I guess it’s a mix, policy decisions are made hastily, don’t know what bad idea you’re actually suspended for, and billionaires have lamented “I do not own! I don’t own!! “will be the standard for the foreseeable future.

I’ve reached out to Twitter for clarification on what rule the affected accounts violated and will update if they can find it and get back to me.
