Senator Mitt Romney may have admitted the alias he used to create a fake Twitter account to follow political news.

The Utah Republican said he had the account during an interview with The Atlantic, causing other reporters to start digging to try to find it.

One reporter looked through the followers on the account of Romney's oldest grandchild and found one under the name Pierre Delecto.

The account had started to gain followers over the weekend before it was made private by whoever owns it.

When Romney was asked about it Sunday, he responded with a French phrase that means "it's me."
