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.
