Updated: Twitter suspends parody @ceoSteveJobs account

Today, it appears that Twitter has suspended the ceoSteveJobs Twitter account, which had approximately 460,000 followers and over 650 tweets at the time of deletion.

Back in January, it turns out that Twitter received a complaint about the account from Apple, in which Apple noted that the account is inviolation of Twitter’s parody account policy as it didn’t clearly state in the account name that it was a parody. Thus, it could be mistaken for a real account (which it was, by a considerable amount of people).

While it is unknown whether specifically the account was suspended for that reason in particular, we have reached out to Twitter and are awaiting comment on the matter.

UPDATE: It appears that today, Twitter has brought the account back from the pits of suspension, under the new name of @fakeceoSteve.
