Twitter suspends Nikki Finke accounts — both of them

The anonymous Twitter spoof account that poses as Deadline.com's Nikki Finke currently rings up suspended if you try to visit @NikklFinke — note the last letter in Nikki there is actually a lower case L. And for whatever reason, the real Finke account — @NikkiFinke — is also suspended as of now. Between these and Guy Adams' shutdown during the Olympics, Twitter does seem to suspend first and ask questions (or come up with justifications) later.
