‘Cameron’s Pig’ starts Twitter account, internet squeals with laughter

‘Cameron’s Pig’ starts Twitter account, internet squeals with laughter

A parody Twitter account is posing as the pig at the center of the #PigGate scandal embroiling Prime Minister David Cameron. Within two days, it has taken the internet by storm.

'Cameron’s Pig’ started its own Twitter account on Monday, a day after allegations emerged suggesting the PM put “a private part of his anatomy” into a dead pig’s mouth at a student initiation ceremony at Oxford University.

The extraordinary claim comes from billionaire Tory donor Lord Ashcroft’s unauthorized biography of Cameron, which is being serialized in the Daily Mail.

Despite its modest 20 tweets, the account has already amassed 15,300 followers.

As seasoned Twitter users might expect, the account hams up the humor quite a bit.

At one point @CameronPig sent the PM a stern message. Cameron appeared unfazed, however.

Whoever is behind the account has certainly attracted attention. Even the Russian Embassy is following it.
