So, you've probably heard Elon Musk is having a massive nightmare over at Twitter. He's called himself a free speech absolutist, but it seems his line is drawn at people making fun of him.
The trolling appears to have been triggered by Musk's plan to charge people for verification on the site. He tweeted last week: "Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is b******t. Blue for $8/month."
Chris Warcraft was one of those verified accounts who led the way by giving his profile a makeover and posting: "There is nothing better than waking up and enjoying a fresh, steaming cup of my own urine. Such a tangy way to start the day, and it’s scientifically proven to help brain cells grow. If you want to be like me, drink your pee."
Elon wasn't having it, and quickly announced a banning spree:
\u201cGoing forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying \u201cparody\u201d will be permanently suspended\u201d
