Nunes sued Twitter and @DevinCow and @DevinNunesMom (now suspended) last year, claiming Twitter failed to take action against comments he claimed defamed him . His lawsuit triggered an explosion in the number of followers of the parody accounts.

Twitter has filed a new motion to dismiss a $250 million lawsuit by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) against the company and two parody Twitter accounts that mocked him.

Twitter argued in a new court filing Wednesday that Nunes can't sue the social media company for remarks in the parody accounts because federal law gives it "broad immunity" from liability for the comments of its users, The Fresno Bee reported.
