Sunday brought us McKay Coppins' detailed interview with Mitt Romney, the last Republican grandee to hold out against Trump's domination of the party. In it, Romney mentioned in passing that uses a secret Twitter account to keep tabs on stuff. Ashley Feinberg tracked it down with ruthless cunning and fast results: This Sure Looks Like Mitt Romney's Secret Twitter Account (Update: It Is).
Meet "Pierre Delecto."
Pierre has only ever tweeted 10 times total, and all of them have been replies to other tweets—certainly the sort of behavior one might expect to see from a self-described "lurker." The account's first tweet, coming a whole four years after its initial registration, was a show of frustration at Fox News for not yet having a New Hampshire presidential poll up. … More recently, there was a tweet expressing unhappiness at Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria (which Romney has publicly condemned) while also insisting on the Senate's powerlessness (as Romney a move as there ever was).
