@DevinCow Explodes To 150,000 Twitter Followers

The Streisand Effect is in full force:

One of the parody Twitter accounts singled out by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has gained viral attention and tens of thousands of new followers since Nunes announced his lawsuit on Monday. The account “Devin Nunes’ cow” (@DevinCow), which, like Twitter itself, is being sued by Nunes for defamation, has amassed nearly 150,000 followers as of Tuesday afternoon. McClatchy reports the parody account had roughly 1,000 followers before being named in Nunes’s lawsuit. It is not clear who the operator is of the parody account.
