Devin Nunes, Republican congressman from California and Trump lapdog, is indicting Twitter for a deep funny reason.
The thrust of the Nunes’ lawsuit is that two mock chronicles — @DevinNunesMom and @DevinCow — libelled Nunes with the support provided by the third largest accused, strategist Liz Mair. Twitter is also mentioned in the clothing for just letting it happen. It too mentions “shadow banning, ” a mistaken declaration often made by reactionaries on Twitter that the stage quashes their tweets.
The part filing is about 40 sheets and can be read now, but below is a selection of the portions that realise us el oh el the most.
Credit to @DevinNunesMom for breathing new life into the “your mom” category of jokes. The account , now suspended, had the word “parody” in its Twitter bio, but that wasn’t enough to keep it off the chopping block. Still, it’s recreation to envisage Nunes being triggered by such a schoolyard-style taunt.
More imaginative is @DevinCow, playing off of Nunes’ early life growing up on a raise. One humorous place of fallout: @DevinCow has picked up millions of Twitter partisans thanks to the lawsuit. Probably not the effect Nunes was hoping for.

It’s likewise worth mentioning that while Liz Mair is called in the clothing, the libel declaration against her is mostly separate from that of the parody notes. The only thing that are linked the two is a 2018 tweet from Mair that shouted out @DevinCow.

The lawsuit eventually accuses the accounts of a “concerted defamation safarus … to cause immense hurting, intimidate, is in conflict with and divert Nunes’ attention from his investigation of corrupt practices and Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential Election.”
If the investigation referred to here is actually the now-infamous Nunes Memo, that shapes the proof even more laughable given that the memo wound up contradicting itself and ultimately has become a self-aggrandizing good-for-nothing burger.
The suit mainly focuses on the now-deleted @DevinNunesMom chronicle and, boy, does it not frustrate. The tweets quoted in the lawsuit include a few real doozies, like 😛 TAGEND
“Devin Nunes’ Mom was also pointed out that Nunes had turned out worse than Jacob Wohl”
“falsely stated that Nunes are most likely connected the ‘Proud Boys’ if it weren’t for that haples’ nomasturbating’ rule”
“and even falsely was also pointed out that Nunes has “herp-face'”
The three divisions of government.
