Mitt Romney Has a Secret Twitter Account, But It’s Not a Secret Anymore

Not many people will admit to having a secret Twitter account, or really any kind of account. After all, the purpose of such an account is to be kept secret. However, Senator and former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney admitted to the Atlantic’s McKay Coppins that he, in fact, did have a secret account.

Naturally, he did not divulge the name of this account but did say that he created it to keep track of political conversations. in addition, he also gave Coppins several vital pieces of information about the account, including that he was currently following 668 people.  He even proceeded to name some of those people, such as several late-night comedians, athletes, and journalists.

Based on this information, it probably wouldn’t be all that hard to find it, especially given the fact that he is known to be a devout family man and one who happens to have a lot of family members.

Lucky for us, someone else already did all the hard work of following these clues to find Romney’s secret account. And according to account finder and writer for Slate Ashely Feinberg, Twitter user @qaws9876 or Pierre Delecto has all the tell-tale signs.

Firstly, it was created just one month after Romney announced his presidential run in 2011.

Secondly, the people Delecto follows are precisely who you would expect Romney to follow. The account currently follows 702 other users. And while this is not the equivalent of 668, as Romney admitted, Feinberg found this account quite a few weeks after Coppins interview with Romney. So it is entirely possible that 30 or so additions could be made in that time period.

But when we look at the names of those he follows, it is even more evidence that this just might be him in disguise.

Delecto primarily follows politicians, pundits, political operatives, and political reporters. Among some of the most well known are late-night hosts Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel, as well as famous athletes such as NFL quarterback Tom Brady and Brett Favre.

And then there are all the family ties.

Guess who Delecto followed first. None other than Romney’s oldest son, Tagg. In fact, all of the Romney children who hold Twitter accounts are being followed by Delecto. As is Jon Moe, a Utah photographer who has taken the extended Romney family’s photos.

The second person to be followed by this account was Glen Johnson, a political editor for Boston.com, who is a known supporter of Romney. Also being supported are Mark DeMoss and Eric Fehrnstrom, both former “advisors” to Romney, as well as quite a few other aides and advisors to the anti-Trump Republican. If we look at the reporters on the list, we notice most have covered Romney and his campaigns over the years, such as Matt Viser, Steven Peoples, Phillip Rucker, Ashley Parker, and even Coppins.

But we can’t leave out the accounts that really put our money on this user being Romney. These are the ones that hardly anyone except Romney would follow. The user account names should be proof enough of this: @SenRomney, @AltPresRomney, @NY4Mitt, and @MittRomney_2016.

And these are just a few. It also follows an account that has only been used once ever, named @Mitt_NH. This was followed by Delecto right after @TeamRomney chose to follow it and right before several other users with similar names did so.

But let’s look at the tweets themselves.

The account has made a total of ten tweets. And all of them have been a response to politically-based tweets.

The first took place in 2015 and criticized Fox News for not having the New Hampshire presidential poll up yet. As it so happened, this is the state where Romney was living at the time.

The next tweet was not made until May of this year and pointed out that Romney had been left out of a list of GOP Senators who supported Richard Burr.

The next few were all made to defend Mitt Romney’s honor after being criticized by various pundits and political bloggers. They all also mentioned that Romney was the obvious choice instead of Trump.

Then there is one condemning Trump’s decision to vacate Syria, a known Romney stance.

The most recent comes after Erick Erickson tweeted in praise of Romney, to which Delecto replied, “Don’t read the comments, ever.”

Suffice it to say; this Pierre Delecto is Mitt Romney. Even Coppins reached out to Romney on the possibility. And Romney replied, “C’est Moi.”

  1. It’s actually very difficult in this active life to
    listen news on TV, therefore I simply use internet for that reason, and get the latest information.

  2. You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe.

    At all times follow your heart.

  3. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve offered in your post.
    They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too
    brief for beginners. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

  4. I have read so many articles regarding the blogger lovers except this article is actually a
    good post, keep it up.

  5. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on quest bars cheap.

    Regards

  6. Maybe he agreed to NOT win against homoobomo in return for $300,000,000 more and future bribes? He seems to be deeply evil.

  7. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. HE IS A BACKSTABBING TRAITOR. HE IS TRYING TO HELP DEMOCRATS GET RID OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, BECAUSE HE IS JUST JEALOUS THAT TRUMP MADE IT AND HE DIDN’T.

  8. When Romney saved the Winter Olympics a few years ago in Utah I felt like the sun rose and set with him. Since then I have changed my mind. This is one strange dude.

  9. No I agree with you.

  10. Mitt Romney is a Never Trumper and will never become the POTUS so he should be voted out of the Senate. He is a jealous Ass Hole Republican and hates Trump.

  11. I totally agree with you. When he ran for president and picked Paul Ryan the snake as VEEP, that was the day I turned against Romney. And he has been such an enemy to President Trump. He wants so bad to be relevant but he is no longer relevant. Even the Mormons don’t vote for him. And anyone who has a secret Twitter account and follows over 600 people, well, he’s got bigger problems than I thought. And he wanted to be president of the US, LOL.

  12. He has lost his mind. He and the Devil are great companions.

  13. Mitt Romney has to be more of a jerk than I previously thought. He rolled over when the Democrats trashed his election for President. Now he is sucking up to them like a love sick girl because President Trump won the election and has Proven himself to be a better President.

  14. I refer to him as Mutt Romney , I remember when he was running , never interacted with the people and his wife acted like they were above others. sorry this is one spoiled rich sorry loser, his every action proves it. I remember as a child I was taught that it isn’t about losing or winning but about how you play the game. hate to say it but we have government officials who are running this country acting and throwing fits like 2 yr old . They outright lie and are so corrupt they have no morals what so ever in doing so . WE the American people should feel insulted that this is the best we DESERVE. This is what happens when you let politicians stay forever in their position ,

  15. He is a traitor to the Republicans and to the state he represents. His Mormon affiliation makes him a bigot as they use to prohibit Hispanics and blacks from holding the priesthood. Shame on you Mitt for throwing stones at President Trump.

  16. He attacks Trump more than he did Obama, He is a Demoncrat.

  17. Romney lost my support when he crumbled during his Presidential campaign against Barack Hussein Obama. I voted for him. He let us down. He could have buried BHO in the debates but just like John McCain they let the deep state dictate their actions in paving the way for one horrible 8 years for the United States under the Obama regime. Now this clown is coming out of the woodwork to derail President Trump’s campaign and re-election. It’s plain and simple, he’s a bitter jealous loser…..

  18. Never did like him.

  19. This is another reason probably why Mitt didn’t get a job in the Trump cabinet…. he’d be one of the leakers! He’s no conservative at all! I voted for him over Obama, which is a decision I’m still fine with, because better than Obama was….albeit… NOT BY MUCH.

  20. WTF!
    Mitt gets 2 Twitter accounts while THOUSANDS of us gets permanently suspended for the very same thing?!!!
    Talk about GROSS and GRAND HIPPOCRACY!
    .
    This HIGHLY BIASED & HATEFUL TWITTER MUST BE SHUT DOWN.
    PERIOD!
    .

  21. Romney was always an idot even when he was running for president he looks like he doesn’t know where he is that dumb wide eyes look that the Democrats have down to a science.

  22. MIT boy is just p/o’d because President Trump won in such a landslide victory AND will win re-election in much the same fashion. Just switch parties, mr. rino.

  23. I agree with you 100%… The man has lost his mind let alone the people who USED TO LIKE HIM and voted for him when he ran for president. Both he and Hillary should fine a really good psychiatrist to help them, maybe they can find one who will give them a 2 for 1 deal. They both sicken me.

  24. I feel like the people who commented before me. I think he is the consummate RINO.
    We need to get him sent home one way or another! He is 100% anti-American, and he’s especially dangerous because he is in a political office where he is positioned to do the country the most damage.

  25. I too use to like him when he was running, and then when he turned and became a socialist, a wannabe demorat and the things he says turned me against him. He can’t be trusted!!!

  26. Sorry I voted for HIM not jim

  27. I’m sorry I voted for jim but he was better then that DIMWIT SOCIALIST DEM running that was HELL BENT on destroying our country.

  28. The first thought that came to my mind, was, the Carlos Danger name. This is just a little freaky! What did me in on him, was when his oldest son said that his dad didn’t REALLY want to win. So our votes for him were wasted. I was sorry that I wasted my vote, but sure am glad that he lost.

  29. I def think He’s very jealous of President Trump and He’s annoyed He didn’t get a position to be in the Presidential Cabinet. He acts like a jealous, spoiled brat, underhanded & nasty.

  30. Mitt the demorat. He has always sided with the demorats. He is only about himself like all establishment types. He is for banning all guns. He is for medicare for all. He is for taxing everything. He supports impeachment and t. He supports Pelosi. Sounds like a typical demorat to me. He would not attack Obama’s policies because he supported all of them. He was rewarded for not beating obama and went to all the Obama’s parties etc. Mitt the demorat.

  31. Yes, I voted for him. I was wrong. He is sneaky and untrustworthy. You can’t trust a person like that. Look at Dems they are very much together right or wrong. You look at Republicans they are fighting with Our President and each other. Specially Mitt he wants to be the leader. His days are gone. He lost to Obama. Showed no self steam to go after Obama. The results Mitt loss winning election.

  32. I USE TO LIKE ROMNEY BUT NOW I JUST DON’T TRUST HIM. ARE THERE MORE FOLKS OUT THERE THAT FEEL THE SAME AS I DO OR AM I JUST BEING SWAYED BY FAKE NEWS???
