New tweet mysteriously appears on late Andrew Breitbart’s account, is quickly deleted

Oh, wow.

Andrew Breitbart’s Twitter account has been a silent memorial to the late conservative icon since his death on March 1. But today the account retweeted blogger David Burge, also known as Iowahawk.

Moments later, the retweet disappeared from the account.

Twitchy has verified that the tweet did indeed appear on Breitbart’s Twitter account. The tweet is archived by Topsy, an automated Twitter aggregation site.

Although it was quickly deleted, the retweet did not go unnoticed.

One possible explanation:

Twitchy will let you know if details about the mysterious retweet emerge. With or without an active Twitter account, there’s no doubt that Breitbart is here. #WAR
