"Just FYI, I've had it with Samuel L. Jackson too."

That's one of more than 30 tweets, so far, that have shown up on @BronxZoosCobra since yesterday.

And it seems that many thousands of followers are interested in what the "snake," who we posted about yesterday, has to say.

As you've hopefully heard, the venonmous reptile hasn't been seen since Saturday. But, zookeepers think it's likely still in a part of the Bronx Zoo that's protected from the public.

We don't know how it learned to tweet, but along with that Snakes on a Plane reference to Samuel L. Jackson, there are some other rather amusing messages:

— "It's getting pretty cold out. I think it's probably time to crash. Oh look, an apartment window someone left open just a crack. Perfect!"

— "Forgot DWTS is tonight! Someone DVR it for me. Want to watch Ralph Macchio go down for what he did to Cobra Kai Dojo."

— "A lot of people are asking how I can tweet with no access to a computer or fingers. Ever heard of an iPhone? Duh."
