Celebrity snake’s a Twitter hit

Egyptian Cobra

By Pat Ryder
HollywoodNews.com: Some stars would kill for this kind of free publicity: the Bronx Zoo snake has over 190K Twitter followers as of 10 a.m. Eastern.

The Egyptian cobra was discovered missing from an enclosure in the Reptile House last Friday, and Bronx Zoo staff have been searching for the escapee ever since. But this snake is laying low.

And tweeting, apparently.

An intrepid soul created a fake Twitter account and started tweeting as the snake’s persona on Sunday.

“Getting on the ferry to Ellis Island. Let’s hope this goes better than that time on the plane,” reads one tweet sent yesterday morning by @BronxZoosCobra, alluding to the 2006 Samuel L. Jackson spoof ‘Snakes On a Plane’.

The New York Post found that there are folks already looking to make a buck on the snake’s toothsome story, including online sellers of standard fare like mugs and shirts.

But there is currently no need to fear the cobra. The adolescent female snake is assumed to be lurking about the Reptile exhibit. Probably trying to figure out how to create a Facebook page.
