Just spoke to @MittRomney on the phone, and asked him about Pierre Delecto. His only response: "C'est moi." Updated my story accordingly: https://t.co/kcfIopokWh

Ashley Feinberg, who unearthed James Comey’s secret Twitter account last year, thinks she may have discovered Mitt Romney’s secret Twitter account that he admitted using to lurk different politicians and celebrities.
“Pierre Delecto,” is that you Mitt Romney?

From the article:
Reader, meet Twitter user @qaws9876, otherwise known as PIerre Delecto.
This account joined the site in July of 2011, just one month after Romney announced his run for president. The majority of people it follows are either political reporters, politicians, political operatives, or pundits. Though it also follows noted big redhead from Boston Conan O’Brien. Pierre Delecto appears to be a fan of the late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, too, as well as current and former NFL players Tom Brady and Brett Favre, respectively.
And according to this screenshot, the email address associated with the account certainly does look like a MittRomney.com domain name:

“Pierre Delecto” just made his account private:
