Social media responds to Mitt Romney's obvious Twitter Delecto Twitter account



Then. Mitt Romney, one of President Trump's best Republican critics, appeared on Sunday to confirm the presence of a shadow Twitter account with the handle @ qaws9876 named Pierre Delecto.

A writer for The Atlantic, who just wrote a profile on the Utah Republican and his tense relationship with the president, asked Romney about the mystery Twitter account. He said Romney answered in the affirmative: "C'est moi."

The Twitter account has no profile or banner image and is locked. The account follows 702 users and has 1,173 followers. The Washington Examiner reported that the account does not follow Trump's account.

Many took to social media to make fun of the name, which reminded users of the Anthony Weiner story with Carlos Danger. Seth Abarmson, author of Newsweek, took to Twitter to joke, "Stop me if you heard this: Pierre Delecto, Carlos Danger and John Barron go into a bar …"

John Barron was reportedly the name of Trump's spokesman in the 1

980s, who was actually Trump himself answering reporters. The Washington Post, citing the book "Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Excellence," reported that Trump's father, Fred Trump, would also use a fake spokesman called "Mr. Green."
