Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) filed a lawsuit back in March after two parody Twitter accounts caused him “extreme pain and suffering” with their content trolling the Republican lawmaker.
Now, Twitter is firing back at Nunes for attempting to find out who the people behind the parody accounts were.
“Twitter is refusing a judge’s request to disclose the identities of two anonymous social media users who are … critical of Rep. Devin Nunes and are being sued by the California Republican,” McClatchy reported Thursday.
In short, Twitter says Nunes has no right to see the names after the Fresno resident filed his lawsuit in Virginia.
“Undersigned counsel has been in contact with lawyers who have advised Twitter that they represent, respectively, the user or users of the @DevinCow account and the user or users of the @DevinNunesMom account,” Twitter wrote in a letter. “Each of those counsel has authorized me to inform the Court, through this letter, that their respective client or clients do not reside or work in Virginia and never used the account while physically present in Virginia.”
