Romney on Secret Twitter Account: Embarrassed to Be Called a Lurker
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) confirmed that he has a secret Twitter account, joking that it is “a new low.”
During an interview on HBOs Axios, Romney was asked about his Twitter account.
On the Axios program, Romney said he has three Twitter accounts, including two official ones, and an anonymous account.
“I have two official accounts—one is a Senate account and the other is the Mitt Romney account and those accounts are not ones I look at regularly. I do follow them, but I have an anonymous account, which is the one that I look at two or three times a day,” he told Axios.
The interviewer then asked him whether he is “a lurker” on Twitter.
“Is that what theyre called? Im embarrassed to be called a lurker. Ive been called a lot of things, but being called a lurker is a new low,” Romney said, while laughing.
