Twitter Inc. (TWTR) - Get Twitter, Inc. Report has finally suspended a fraudulent account that had been masquerading as the official Twitter account of McDonald's Corp. (MCD) - Get McDonald's Corporation Report Hong Kong.
The account, which had been tweeting under the @McDonalds_HK Twitter moniker, had made a habit of posting seemingly genuine tweets since it was started in October 2016.
However, over the weekend the account began tweeting bizarre personal updates.
"This is not a McDonald's Twitter account but one that is impersonating a verified account," said Terri Hickey, the manager of global corporate communications for McDonald's, according to Fox News. "We are taking steps to have it promptly taken down."
