Politwoops: “Sanders Tops 2016 Field in Newly Deleted Tweets”
Presidential contenders are finding it impossible to quietly delete tweets on social media.
A tool that archives politician’s deleted tweets came back online in late January and has recorded candidates deleting hundreds of tweets.
Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders tops the list, with 58 deletions from January to March 4. In many of those cases, though, he just deleted retweets of others’ social media posts. On the GOP side, John Kasich tops the list, with 31, ahead of the race’s front-runner, Donald Trump, who has 28 deletions.
Politwoops has recorded high-profile deletions that captured press attention and sparked controversy or ridicule.
