    The website GOP.com had previously listed the Twitter handle for the Maryland Republican Party as @mdreps, an account that tweets porn links and is associated with a website entitled sexycarbabes.com. The Capital Gazette reported the error on Monday and Republican administrators corrected the error after the publication of the story.

    Executive Director of the Maryland Republican Party Patrick O’Keefe told the Gazette that his group had changed its Twitter handle to @mdgop in January but had not informed the national officials. “We did not (tell them).

O’Keefe claimed that name change occurred when the party wanted to have its Twitter account verified. As a result, Twitter offered to switch handles to @mdgop so that the Maryland Republican Party could achieve verified status.
