Kirsten Allen, who was recently appointed as Vice President Kamala Harris’s press secretary, reportedly deleted more than 10,000 tweets before accepting the high-profile position.

Social Blade, a website that tracks activity on social media sites, revealed that Allen took down a staggering 10,594 tweets between January 5 and January 11 two months before it was confirmed that she had accepted the position. Allen, who was reportedly not in communication with Harris's office until February, was roped in to replace top Democrat spokeswoman Symone Sanders, who resigned from the White House in December.

While Social Blade does not track which tweets were exactly deleted, speculators “raised questions about the content on her page before it was scrubbed" considering Allen's former employers were the disgraced Floridian gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. According to Breitbart News, Allen has a history of sharing radical opinions on Twitter, including pro-vaccine mandate notions and retweeting controversial figures such as 1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones as well as a number of far-left reporters.

Harris's latest press secretary pick was mocked and excoriated on social media for the apparent Twitter purge. "I would love to know what those 10,000 tweets were about. Let's see how long Kirsten Allen lasts?!? It seems Kamala Harris’ staff has dropped off like flies because of her ill-treatment towards her staff," one tweeted.

"Took a week deleting over 10k tweets. What the actual? They definitely need to peruse that list," another wrote. "Given the performance of everyone in that Administration (not named Psaki), I imagine 10,000 more verbal gaffes and divisive comments are on their way," someone else added.

"Got to give her credit, most of the Biden/Harris folks are too stupid to remember to hide their past transgressions," a comment read. "If someone has time to send over 17,000 tweets, and then filter and delete 10,000 of them, probably not the person for the job...Indicator of someone who spends too much time on social media, and not enough doing her job," one offered. "Trash just like her boss!" another chimed in.

Allen was invited by Harris to replace Sanders, who resigned from her position to join MSNBC. It's worth noting that Sanders is just one of several members who departed Harris's team in recent months. More than five of her staffers left their cushy White House jobs after experiencing “disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions” because of an “abusive environment” where they were “treated like shit."

The resets come as Harris continues to make relentless gaffes at critical junctures. The veep raised eyebrows when NBC News’s Lester Holt asked her whether she had traveled to the southern border to inspect the humanitarian crisis and the unchecked influx of undocumented immigrants.

She replied to the news anchor, “and I haven’t been to Europe.” Recently, Harris suggested that Ukraine was a NATO member before backtracking on her comment. “The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance,” Harris tweeted on Tuesday, March 22, and took the post down shortly after. And on Monday, March 21, the vice president rambled about the “significance of the passage of time” during a speech in Sunset, Louisiana, mentioning the clause four times within 32 seconds, Breitbart News reported.
