Judge Dismisses Nunes Attempt To Sue Twitter Over Bovine Account

A judge has dismissed Representative Devin Nunes's lawsuit against Twitter over the content of the Twitter account @DevinCow because Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act doesn't allow courts to treat social media platforms as publishers of the content of these accounts. Although Mr. Nunes could still pursue his lawsuit (and beef) against whoever maintains the @DevinCow account, his attorney admits they've been unable to determine who that might be. Maybe it's time to moove on?
