A parody account set up as news of Amazon’s plan to introduce robot drones to deliver its packages broke has been threatened with suspension from Twitter.

The @AmazonDrone account has secured a following of 8,245 within 23 hours of opening.

It has posted a notification which it is claimed has come from Twitter, stating that the account has been subject to a complaint and may be in violation of Twitter’s policies on impersonation and trademark.
The account’s username has been conveyed to Amazon, and the parody account has been modified by Twitter.

“To resolve confusion with the brand, we will add an underscore to your username and will release the username to the brand owners for their active use on Twitter,” the notification reads.

The notice adds that the account may be permanently suspended if the instructions are not complied with.
