The New York Daily News noted the emergence of the parody account, which quickly swelled to 40,000 followers yesterday.
Mitt Romney's only official tweet about Hurricane Sandy is the number to text a Red Cross donation. But that's not much fun, so Twitter has picked up the slack and offered up some satirical storm survival tips in the GOP presidential hopeful's name.This morning, somewhere around 6:30 ET that account was suspended.
As the East Coast braced for Sandy's wrath Monday, the hashtag "#MittsStormTips" trended.
Faux-advice from the ultra-wealthy candidate included "Poor people make great flotation devices" and "Move your binders full of women and children to higher ground so they stay dry" - a riff on Romney's bizarre debate comment about women in the workplace.
Alternet captured some of the best tweets.
