A fake cow who is the subject of a lawsuit by a congressman has its moment of glory.
The "Devin Nunes Cow" Twitter account, which claims "hanging out in the Iowa Dairy in search of the latest" betrayed beef ", has more than 455,000 subscribers on Wednesday afternoon, a dramatic increase over to 1000 before The representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) on Tuesday initiated a lawsuit against the account of the cow, Twitter, and two other users, for defamation.
Clean of Nunes verified account has 395,000 subscribers in the same period.
The lawsuit alleges that the cow's account, as well as the one called @DevinNunesMom, "repeatedly tweeted and retweeted abusive and hateful content" about the congressman, in violation of Twitter's instructions to use.
The growing popularity of @DevinCow has led to more puns for a case that has already given birth to a parody account of Stephen Colbert.
"It's silly, but also nice UDDER-Ly," says CNN Ana Navarro-Cárdenas tweeted. "Milk for all it's worth."
Nunes, the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is claiming $ 250 million in damages and wants to reveal the identities of users @DevinCow and @DevinNunesMom.
According to Deanna Paul of The Post, the lawsuit "alleged violations of Virginia law against insults. She also sued Twitter for conspiracy and negligence. The technology company, said Nunes, "intends to generate and proliferate false and defamatory statements" about it. His inability to police means tweets, puns and memos posted by accounts claiming to be his mother and cow caused him "extreme pain and suffering."
Nunes told Fox News' Sean Hannity that the lawsuit was "the first of many" to come, although legal experts question her chances of success.
