Anti-Trump RINO Senator Mitt Romney was recently featured in an expose’ in The Atlantic where he shockingly admitted that he uses an anonymous Twitter account to “keep tabs on the political conversation.”
Romney refused to reveal what the accounts name was, however he did reveal that he was following 668 people. It didn’t take long for someone to find the account.
Check out what The Atlantic reported:
“That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said, but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of the accounts he follows, including journalists, late-night comedians (“What’s his name, the big redhead from Boston?”), and athletes. Trump was not among them. “He tweets so much,” Romney said, comparing the president to one of his nieces who overshares on Instagram. “I love her, but it’s like, Ah, it’s too much.”
According to Slate contributor Ashely Feinberg, Romney’s anonymous account is “Pierre Delecto” on Twitter and consists of many anti-Trump, pro-Romney posts.
Feinberg explains why she believes this is Romney’s account:
The Pierre Delecto account’s very first follow was eldest Romney scion Tagg, joined shortly thereafter by Glen Johnson, a current politics editor for Boston.com who was firmly on the Romney beat around the time the account was originally created. Next was Mark DeMoss, who the Salt Lake Tribune described in 2012 as “an unpaid adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign for the past five years,” and Eric Fehrnstrom, who still has “Former @MittRomney adviser” in his Twitter bio.
Many of the comments made through the “Pierre Delecto” account were to anti-Romney voices where Romney, through his anonymous account, would defend himself. He also ‘liked’ many anti-Trump tweets promoted by liberals.
Check out some of his ‘likes’ provided by conservative reporter Jack Posobiec:

It appears that Romney has even admitted to this being his account:

On Monday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reacted to the revelation by shredding Romney for his childish behavior noting that the account was “stunning,” adding it is “the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts.”
“The man’s 72 years old,” Huckabee said. “Having fake Twitter accounts on social media, that’s the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts like Carlos Danger. What on Earth does a United States senator do calling himself Pierre Dilecto? If he’s got something to say, man up and say it.”
“Let us all realize that this guy is not a team player,” he added. “He’s still bitter because Donald Trump got elected and he didn’t. He needs to get over it.”
