Gizmodo did some digging into comments by James Comey, who said he had secret Instagram and Twitter accounts, with great success. The writer, Ashley Feinberg, surmised that his Twitter account had to be @projectexile7.
Project Exile happens to be a federal program that James Comey helped develop when he was a U.S. attorney living in Richmond. And then, of course, there are the follows. ProjectExile7 follows 27 other accounts, the majority of which are either reporters, news outlets, or official government and law enforcement accounts. The New York Times’ Adam Goldman and David Sanger and the Washington Post’s Ellen Nakashima and David Ignatius, all of whom have been aggressively covering the FBI investigation into Trump’s contacts with Russian agents, made the list, as did Wittes and former Bush Administration colleague Jack Goldsmith. Donald Trump is on there, too, but @projectexile7 seems to have begun following him relatively recently (its first follow was @nytimes). There are two outliers: William & Mary News (where Comey attended undergrad) and our colleagues at The Onion (everyone deserves to have fun).
Let's assume Ms. Feinberg nailed Comey and his secret Twitter account. What can we learn from his activity? He hasn't tweeted, so there's nothing to judge there. His list of follows, as mentioned above, includes both media and political accounts. He follows a sundry of law enforcement accounts, such as the CIA, NYPD Counter-terrorism, Office of the DNI, FBI NY, elitist publication The Atlantic, and main stream publications like Washpo, NY Times and Politico. Of the 39 articles he 'liked', 8 were about him. Here are some other noteworthy ones. Pedo-related Republican Scott Walker attacking MUH college professors Pro-Kasich article He doesn't follow Breitbart, but liked this anyway. Perhaps he was amused by it? He liked a marxist propaganda piece by Washpo. EPA shilling. Russian conspiracies. Our FBI director gets all of his news from main stream media fake news outlets and seems to favor a lot of liberal shilling in his twitter feed. Is it something? Probably not. But it's interesting to see how self-absorbed he is with the way media perceives him -- with 20% of his 'likes' being articles that talked about him.
