Interestingly, it was restored less than an hour later, but it was missing a lot of previous tweets.
@pbump It doesn't look like he's tweeted since the summer of 2020 though— Ben Jacobs (@Ben Jacobs)1612928384.0
It was then revealed a number of tweets from far-right political radio show host Dan Bongino.
Looks like there has been some recent activity on the @DevinNunes account, though: deletions. https://t.co/5e3je9VPHO pic.twitter.com/fE2Q8aNs5A

It prompted several comments and jokes from people who have watched as fake Nunes accounts to troll the California congressman. @DevinCow was sued by Rep. Nunes for falsely claiming to be one of Nunes' cows at his family's dairy farm in Iowa.
