As Twitchy reported, TweetGate broke Tuesday night when it was reported that Jofi Joseph, a White House national security official, was fired last week and exposed as Twitter user @natsecwonk. That account posted misogynistic and insulting tweets, along with insider information, for more than two years.
Amanda Carpenter, senior communications adviser to Sen. Cruz, notes something very telling about the firing:
WH official was fired for writing disparaging tweets about the administration. IRS scandal? Benghazi? Obamacare? No firings. Hm.

@amandacarpenter The others did not personally insult Valerie Jarrett. Can't talk about somebody's mama and get away with it.

Hey, President Obama clearly feels a kinship with the incompetent. Birds of a feather!
