A biologist and associate professor at the University of Copenhagen’s Natural History Museum of Denmark have has discovered a type of parasitic fungus on Twitter.

Ana Sofia Reboleira came across a picture of a North American millipede (Cambala annulata) on Twitter.

The parasitic fungus was named after Twitter and was called Troglomyces twitteri.

But if you’re @SReboleira [Ana Sofia Reboleira’s handle], you have AMAZING vision and a preternatural talent for spying tiny fungi.

Until then, these fungi had never been found on American millipedes,” she said in a statement released by the University of Copenhagen.
