Anthony Weiner, who resigned his New York congressional seat in 2011 after he was caught sending lewd photos to female followers on Twitter rejoined the social network site on Monday, the Associated Press is reporting.
Weiner already has more than 6,000 followers. He is not following anyone.
After keeping a low profile for two years, Weiner is making a sort of comeback to public life. A profile in The New York Times this month focused on the married Democrat's life after he resigned from his seat representing the city’s 9th district.
His Twitter profile @anthonyweiner implies he’s on a mission: “Fighting to keep New York City the Capital of the Middle Class.”
The Times article reported that Weiner is eyeing the mayor's race in New York, AP said.
Weiner’s first tweet Monday was a link to a policy paper he authored, titled "Keys to the City: 64 Ideas to Keep New York the Capital of the Middle Class."
Weiner's once-promising political career vanished after the sexting Twitter scandal. At first, he denied tweeting a suggestive photo of himself in his underwear and said his Twitter account had been hacked. He eventually admitted to tweeting the photo.
