politics Twitter cracks down again on Ford satire accounts A second Doug Ford satirical account, @frodnation2018, was suspended on Oct. 12, but it is unclear what suddenly prompted the suspension.

"I merely received the same vague letter claiming that it violated Twitter's "impersonation" rules," says Richard Feren, the man behind the account.

Another DoFo related account, @DougFordFacts—this one unrelated to Feren—was briefly suspended last week, but was reinstated after some minor modifications were made to its profile. Feren then discovered that the other Twitter account he runs, @FordYearsAgo, an informational account that tweeted historical facts and articles about the Fords from exactly four years to the day, was also suspended. He appealed the suspension, and received a vague form letter claiming impersonation again.
