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.
With jokes like this.
But when the news moves on do the parody accounts stop tweeting? Not always. Remember Godfrey Bloom's "Bongo Bongo Land" comments last summer?
This tweet was particularly popular at the time.
Some suggested that it might not be tweeting forever.
But it's still going. It tweeted just a few days ago.
Many twitter parodies barely start. They tweet for a few hours, then give up when no-one really follows or there's no material.
But there are exceptions. Remember @EssexLion, which started tweeting after reports that a Lion had been spotted in Essex? The event happened in August 2012.
The account remained active, mainly tweeting jokes in relation to other news well after its own story was finished.
But, after a year, the lion finally gave up.
Some accounts last even longer than that. Remember @CatBinLady? The parody account started in 2010 after Mary Bale put a cat in a bin.
The account stopped tweeting, but only 2 months ago. Its last tweets just look incredibly stale and tired.
A lot of Twitter parodies are like this. They just fade away. The exception are ones like @IAmRoyalBaby.
Because there's going to be always news about Prince George, the baby will keep on tweeting.
Then there are parody accounts like @PippaTips, which manages to keep going because essentially it is the same joke over and over again.
It will just run and run and run and run.
But then again the parody account can still keep going with jokes that aren't very good. Remember the 2012 Republican Convention, when Clint Eastwood spoke to an chair pretending that it was Obama?
He's still tweeting jokes about chairs. STILL.
So there might be a long future for @UKIPWeather yet.
