Lee Makes List of Top ‘Deleted Tweets’

Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz make a year-end top-10 list, but it's probably not one they will put on the 'ol resume.

The Sunlight Foundation's list of top deleted Tweets includes Cruz and Lee at #4.

In May, the official account of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, deleted a tweet with the picture to the right that said, "Did a little shopping for the office with @SenMikeLee in Houston today." The message garnered praise from Roll Call who wrote, "Sen. Ted Cruz did a little troll hunting April 23, baiting the entirety of the Internet-enabled world with a perplexing pic of an urban safari that incited carnage across the social mediasphere" and Cruz's spokesperson told the Washington Post, "the office is not defensive of the picture." A week later it was deleted.
