Twitter Suspends Steve Jobs Parody Account

Twitter Confidential

Twitter, it seems, has suspended @ceoSteveJobs, a parody account of the Apple CEO.

Twitter’s policies (and a recent California law) say that parody accounts must clearly label themselves as such, but @ceoSteveJobs has done so in its Twitter bio, so it’s unclear what the reason is. Apple had already complained to Twitter about the account recently, and one has to wonder about the timing, as Apple’s big iPad 2 event is today.
