In the high-reward, high-risk arena of Twitter parody accounts, it seems you can be on top of the world one day and down on your luck the next.

The account @MexicanMitt, which parodies Mitt Romney’s perceived convenient Mexican descent, was suspended last night before Romney’s big speech at the Republican National Convention.

It was reinstated right after the speech concluded and after a #FreeMexicanMitt hashtag made the rounds. Mexican Mitt was forced to write Mexican Mitt Parody as his name or face suspension again.

An even larger parody account shot to fame during the last night of the convention, before being suspended and reinstated on Friday morning.

The account @InvisibleObama garnered 40,000 followers in less than 12 hours, after Clint Eastwood, a surprise guest, devoted part of his speech to a back and forth conversation with a chair meant to represent President Barack Obama.

The RNC spotlight interview with a chair took the Internet by storm as memes sprang up celebrating its occurrence and Invisible Obama was part of it.
