Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is normally a "straight-laced" politician who in this case felt he could be a little more easygoing through his "Pierre Delecto" handle, Kurtz claimed Monday on "The Story."
"He's more caustically anti-Trump in this fake account and the press loves that," Kurtz said.
"Now that he's anti-Trump -- remember how much-maligned and mocked he was as the 2012 nominee? Now -- strange new respect."
In addition, Kurtz said the situation showed the former Massachusetts governor may have been out of his element by apparently creating a fake Twitter account.
"Mitt Romney wasn't built for the digital age," he said.
"I think he's kind of a straight-laced dude who thought he could be a little naughty."
However, Kurtz and host Martha MacCallum also noted there have been other major political figures who have relied on pseudonyms and the like to get messaging out.
When he was the head of the Trump Organization, Trump was reportedly the man behind the identity of "John Miller," who would often speak in glowing terms to the media about the mogul, Kurtz said.
"Donald Trump, as a businessman, used to call reporters and say 'I'm John Miller, I'm Trump's PR guy'," Kurtz said.
