Mitt Romney Seemingly Confirms Secret Twitter Account

FILE – In a Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016 file photo, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney talks with reporters after eating dinner with President-elect Donald Trump at Jean-Georges restaurant, in New York. Romney’s “binders full of women” are actual binders after all _ filled with the resumes of women who hoped to land jobs in his administration as governor. The Boston Globe reports Tuesday, April 11, 2017, that it was shown the binders by a former Romney aide. The two white three-ring binders contain about 200 cover letters and resumes with some handwritten notes. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)

It turns out that Mitt Romney has a second, secret Twitter account, which he would use to defend himself from critics.

The Utah senator fessed up to The Atlantic of its existence, but wouldn’t reveal the user name, only noting the number of followers.

Slate’s Ashley Feinberg didn’t have much trouble uncovering the profile photo-less handle, especially with Pierre Delecto following members of Romney’s family, fellow lawmakers, and former advisers from his 2012 White House bid.

When confronted with the evidence on Sunday, Romney admitted, “C’est moi”. The account is now private.

How do you feel about public figures running secret social media accounts to defend themselves?
