A parody account on Twitter that is one of the subjects of a lawsuit filed by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has gained more than 460,000 followers since Monday — giving it more followers than Nunes himself.

As Mediaite noted, @DevinCow's list of followers has shot through the roof and is now more than 65,000 ahead of the official account for Nunes, a former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

As of 5 p.m. ET Wednesday, Nunes' account had 395,000 followers and the parody account had 461,000.

Nunes is suing Twitter for $250 million and is seeking an additional $350,000 in punitive damages, alleging it shadow bans conservatives and is "knowingly hosting and monetizing content that is clearly abusive, hateful and defamatory — providing both a voice and financial incentive to the defamers — thereby facilitating defamation on its platform."
