Twitter is usually pretty good about protecting people's right to do parodies, but apparently someone there got a little sensitive about a parody account called CascadedBug, after the supposed cascade bug that caused quite a bit of downtime. Apparently Twitter suspended the account. Then unsuspended it. Then suspended it again. Then unsuspended it again. No matter what, it seems ridiculous that the account was ever suspended. Twitter, whose execs normally have a decent sense of humor, would have won a lot more points with the public by just tweeting at the account, rather than suspending it...
