Sen. Mike Lee has his own account on the social media site.
At the end of last month, the account popped up seemingly out of nowhere, posting news articles about Prince Harry, Lee and the tech companies he wants to regulate as a senator.
On July 24th, Lee commented on the account, saying that the haters couldn't handle it.
Lee wrote, "This account is no cap - bussin, forreal forreal", after quoting a quote from a contributor.
Lee's account was confirmed by the Salt Lake Tribune. Lee Lonsberry said in a statement that it was the senator's account.

The personal account of Romney, which was previously revealed, has an image of himself displayed on the senator'savatar. The bio states that he is a senator from Utah.
The senator had an official US Senate account. Lawmakers are often encouraged to create separate personal social media accounts for their official office, their campaigns, and for personal use, because there are rules prohibiting them from using government resources and staff to maintain personal profiles.
The authenticity of Lee's personal account came into question after he commented on the FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago.
Lee wrote in the Tuesday thread that he has a few questions about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago.
