    They are going to get suspended. Selling Twitter accounts is against their TOS.

    Well technically they bought an entire company, then deliberately sold the company off and kept all of their social media properties including Twitter account, and just changed the username. So in the end they spent 22M to keep a Twitter account with 300K followers a couple facebook pages and a FourSquare. Hahaaha
