Twitter suspends Vladimir Putin parody account
It’s fine to be nasty to someone on Twitter or have an account that spews hate, but God forbid you satirize Vladimir Putin.
The @DarthPutinKGB account, which had more than 50,000 followers, was no longer visible Tuesday afternoon, with a brief note explaining “This account has been suspended.”
The @SovietSergey account, poking fun at Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, was also suspended recently, Radio Free Europe reported.
Radio Free Europe published a collection of @DarthPutinKGB’s best tweets Tuesday, including: “Russia has cut defense spending. Attack spending remains unchanged,” “Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t good looking enough to play me,” and “Don’t believe anything the Kremlin doesn’t first deny.”
