Medikal’s Twitter account suspended for ‘impersonating’ Akufo-Addo

A few days ago, Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk announced his intention to ban accounts pretending to be someone else without flagging them as parody pages.

It seems Ghanaian musician, Medikal, has fallen victim to the new modality on the microblogging website.

On Tuesday night, his Twitter account was suspended for cloning President Akufo-Addo after he made a few changes to his public profile.

He changed his username to Mr President and his image to that of the President. However, he maintained his handle @AMGMedikal.

Moments after these adjustments, the award-winning rapper’s account was suspended.

It is not clear whether the ban had something to do with Twitter’s new policy, but per Elon’s earlier hint, social media is awash with multiple theories.

On November 6, Elon Musk tweeted, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying “parody” will be permanently suspended.”

The firebrand further added that there would be “no warning” ahead of the suspension, adding that any name change will also result in people losing their verification badge.

Elon’s dramatic changes on the social network have left speculation since his takeover.

From charging $8 for a verification badge to laying off about 50% of the workforce including the newly-opened Accra office staff, the list goes on.
