What Happens To Parody Twitter Accounts Once The News Story Is Over?

1. You might be familiar with @UKIPWeather, a parody Twitter that went viral after a UKIP councillor was suspended for blaming bad weather on gay marriage.

The account has gathered more than 108,000 followers in just a few days.

4. But when the news moves on do the parody accounts stop tweeting? Not always. Remember Godfrey Bloom’s “Bongo Bongo Land” comments last summer?

And @BongoGov was created. It was popular for a short while.
