WASHINGTON, March 6 (UPI) -- If you're running for president, you may want to double-check those tweets before hitting send because the ones you delete aren't gone forever.
The website Politwoops is tracking the number of tweets each candidate has deleted during the campaign. And while the Republican party's front-runner has become known for hurling insults and bragging about his standing in the race around-the-clock on Twitter, Donald Trump actually does not lead in this particular category.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders tops the list with the most deleted tweets of any candidate -- 58 since the site relaunched in January to begin tracking candidates' social media presence.
While The Hill reports the vast majority of Sanders' deletions are retweets, not something the candidate wrote on his own, there was at least one embarrassing moment Sanders might prefer was scrubbed from the Internet.
A tweet in February saw the candidate -- who has enthralled liberals with his unapologetic critique of Wall Street greed -- rattle off a list of words describing bankers, including "greed, fraud, dishonesty, arrogance."
"These are just a few of the adjectives we use to describe Wall Street," Sanders wrote.
The problem: Greed, fraud, dishonesty and arrogance are nouns, not adjectives. The tweet was deleted shortly after being sent when Twitter users began pointing out Sanders' grammatical faux pas.
Though Trump has only deleted 28 tweets since January, at least one of them was newsworthy. After he lost the Iowa caucuses to Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump took to Twitter to grouse about what he saw as underhanded campaign tactics from Cruz, whose campaign put out a robocall implying Ben Carson had dropped out of the race.
In his initial rant, Trump called the tactics "illegal." He quickly deleted the tweet and replaced it with a less direct criticism of the Cruz campaign's actions.
