Mitt Romney’s references to Seinfeld character George Costanza during debates has fostered a reaction from the character himself.

Jason Alexander, best known for his character George Costanza on hit sitcom Seinfeld, tweeted at the presidential hopeful after Romney referenced the character for the second time during a public address.

“Thrilled Gov. Romney enjoys my old character. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he’d embrace that again, he’d b a great candidate,” Alexander tweeted.

Alexander’s surly tweet perhaps spurred a Twitter revolution on the social network. Many of Alexander’s near 87,000 followers began tweeting at the actor, telling him that Costanza should be in the presidential running and crafting slogans such as “Costanza 4 Prez.”

“Hey Tweeple, your Costanza 4 prez tweets r just hilarious. I am truly flattered and I have been laughing all day at your creations,” Alexander tweeted in response to Costanza’s newfound fame.

Romney first referenced Alexander’s character in December, when he told a crowd: “Remember that George Costanza line? When they’re laughing and applauding, you sit down.”

He most recently used a nuance of the same line in a Republican debate in Arizona Wednesday night. The references both trace back to the Seinfeld episode where Costanza puts great effort towards getting his coworkers to laugh.
