Devin Nunes surpassed on Twitter by a cow parody account he sued - 2019-03-20
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., filed a $250 million lawsuit earlier this week against Twitter and a number of parody accounts that poked fun at the congressman, a fierce defender of President Donald Trump.
The lawsuit named several of the spoof accounts and well, yeah, things turned out just about the way one would think. Twitter users started immediately following the accounts listed in the lawsuit, notably one account dedicated to Nunes' cow.
Two days after the lawsuit was filed Monday, @DevinCow, which had less than 2,000 followers, now boasts a following of nearly half a million on Twitter. The massive follower count, which stood at 454,000 as of Wednesday afternoon, even surpassed Nunes' account and its 395,000 followers.
