Rupert Murdoch responded on Monday to an apparent backlash surrounding his critical comments about Mitt Romney.

The mogul caused a sensation on Sunday when he took to his favorite new venue, Twitter, to announce that he thought it was "doubtful" that Romney would assemble a good enough team behind him to beat President Obama in November. (He also threw in some jabs at Scientology and Tom Cruise for good measure.)

On Monday, Murdoch issued a follow-up tweet:

Rupert Murdoch
Romney people upset at me! Of course I want him to win, save us from socialism, etc but should listen to good advice and get stuck in!

"Socialism, etc." Can Rupert Murdoch tweet all the time?
