Journalist says she's found Twitter account of FBI director
WASHINGTON - A reporter for the website Gizmodo says she's uncovered a stealth Twitter account that she believes belongs to FBI Director James Comey.
Comey acknowledged in a speech Wednesday that he was "on Twitter now," though he did not reveal his account information.
In a first-person account posted Thursday, Gizmodo journalist Ashley Feinberg said she used several clues to trace Comey's Twitter presence to a user name of Reinhold Niebuhr with handle "projectexile7."
Comey's senior thesis was about Niebuhr, a theologian.
An FBI spokesman declined to comment.
Hours after the Gizmodo story, a tweet appeared on projectexile7 with an image of Will Ferrell in "Anchorman" and a quote from the movie: "Actually I'm Not Even Mad. That's Amazing." The tweet also included a link to the FBI job application site.
