(Newser) – Remember Sarah Palin's (alleged) secret Facebook page? Well, it turns out she may also have a secret Twitter account. And, seeing as the mysterious "Lou Sarah" Facebook page was used to "like" things on the official Sarah Palin Facebook page, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the "mckinely777" Twitter account is used to, yes, follow Sarah Palin's official Twitter account. Wonkette found the Twitter feed in the same way it found the Facebook page (by searching for her personal email address, as revealed in her ex-aide's leaked tell-all.)

The account, which was created Jan. 24, 2010, follows just two others—Newt Gingrich and the Drudge Report—and has not posted any tweets ("or they had been scrubbed before we got there," writes Jack Stuef for Wonkette). Palin's vague denial of the Facebook allegations also mentioned Twitter, even before anyone accused her of having a secret Twitter account: "This is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account. Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages." (The "Lou Sarah" Facebook page has since been taken down.)

Who would name her account 'mckinely777'? Somebody who loves Alaska so much that Mt. McKinley is the first thing that comes to mind when she thinks of a random name, but somebody who also can’t spell 'McKinley.' Yeah, that sounds like Sarah Palin.
