Meet Pierre Delecto: Mitt Romney’s alter-Twitter-ego

The Utah Republican senator had for years held onto a secret Twitter account he rarely used until recently. After mentioning he had one, a little online sleuthing by a journalist pointed to an account with few followers and few tweets but one that clearly had the markings of one Mitt Romney.

The senator told The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins that he had a secret Twitter account with enough details that Slate’s Ashley Feinberg was able to suss it out by looking at social media of his kids and grandkids. Romney later confirmed the account was his.
