During the interview Mitt admitted to having a second secret Twitter account following 668 people.
Via the Atlantic:
“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.”
It didn’t take Slate contributor Ashley Feinberg too long to find the secret account.

According to Feinberg:
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.
The Pierre Delecto Twitter page was set to private.

And… Already we have this… Pierre liked this tweet on Little Marco.
Mitt Romney (AKA Pierre Delecto) liked this tweet. (As did I.)Since @MittRomney is the most prominent @GOP anti-Trumper, I’m starting to wonder . . . which foreign country was told it wouldn’t get its foreign aid until it found out who Pierre Delecto was . . . https://t.co/W9pfm2WLwu— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) October 21, 2019
Here’s another nasty tweet he liked on Newt Gingrich.
Mitt Romney and New Gingrich don’t like each other. That is not news. Romney once called him a “failed leader” who “resigned in disgrace.” #PierreDelecto also does not care for Newt Gingrich, as demonstrated by his like of this tweet. 3/ pic.twitter.com/B8oCtzjA9j— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) October 20, 2019
And Mitt retweeted a Bill Kristol tweet in SUPPORT OF IMPEACHMENT!
Many people have been reminding Lindsey Graham that he used to be a bit more likely to find Presidential misbehavior to be impeachment-worthy in the past. Pierre Delecto also liked this tweet about the person who may or may not be his fellow Senator! 5/ pic.twitter.com/RS49CU3Bwp— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) October 20, 2019
