Alec Baldwin and Garrett Jackson, Mitt Romney's former personal aide, got into a sparring match on Twitter on Wednesday after Baldwin tweeted praise for the upcoming documentary "Above All Else," about the Keystone XL oil pipeline in Texas.

Following Jackson's dig, Baldwin went on the offensive in a series of tweets that the actor has since deleted. Jackson posted many of them on his own feed, with particular attention paid to the comments Baldwin made about Jackson being on his knees in his Twitter photo.

HuffPost Entertainment contacted representatives for Baldwin, who had no comment on the matter. Baldwin didn't make direct comment on the Jackson tweets on his feed, but he did post the following:

Baldwin also took a swipe at ABC News, which reported his battle with Jackson.

Last year, Baldwin apologized to GLAAD after posting a string of tweets, including some with homophobic language, that were directed at a reporter for the Daily Mail.
