Did OFA delete tweets about Romney & Iraq? No. Use this trick to find them

, , , , ,

We sure do! Attaaaaack Waaaaaaatch!

Before it evolved into @OFATruthTeam, the Obama campaign’s #AttackWatch account was @TruthTeam2012.

On Thursday night, some Twitter users thought the TruthTeam’s pitiful 2012 tweets about Mitt Romney’s position on Iraq had taken a trip down the memory hole. Those tweets weren’t deleted, but because OFA changed the handle from @TruthTeam2012 to @OFATruthTeam in 2013, a search like “from:OFATruthTeam AND Iraq” yields no results.

Want to mine pre-2013 TruthTeam tweets for hidden gems? Use the old TruthTeam handle to try Twitter searches like these:

from:TruthTeam2012 AND Iraq

from:TruthTeam2012 AND al Qaeda

Now we’re getting somewhere. The tweets you find in those searches will show up with the newer Twitter handle, but were tweeted before the handle was changed. We’ll just leave these tweets right here:

Have at it — see what ridiculous TruthTeam tweets you can find.

Just for fun, here’s an Attaaaaack Waaaaaaatch flashback video from Ezra Dulis:
