Twitter has had a huge issue with fake twitter bots doing cryptocurrency scams by replying to Elon Musk on Twitter in the hope people fall for it and click the link.
The Verge says that in order to fix this Twitter made a very targeted policy that will automatically lock users that change their profile name to “Elon Musk”.
Now all the parody Elon Musk account’s will pass if they verify their accounts after the policy is implemented but all unverified will have their accounts locked. The solution is quite a quick fix it seems, the problem is still there even if it’s not about Elon Musk account.
Anyway, who cares about that what’s more important are the new wave of funny parody account popping up.
Here we have the “French Elon Musque” that have gained 45,000 followers in just 24 hours here’s what he tweets about.

Being how huge and famous Elon Musk is on twitter many are engaged in creating their own parody accounts and some are even taking the challenge to get their account locked.
