Former Rep. Anthony Weiner has returned to Twitter, over a year after the micro-blogging service got him into hot water.
Weiner's last post on Twitter was on June 1, 2011 -- just weeks before he resigned from Congress.
Weiner accidentally tweeted photos of his crotch to his Twitter followers, but claimed he was hacked. The New York lawmaker made the mistake of sending a lewd message to his followers that was intended to be private. He ultimatelywith several women and resigned on June 16.
On Wednesday, Weiner posted the link to a YouTube video on his Twitter feed, showing the damage in the Rockaways in New York, left in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
Some are questioning why Weiner would return to Twitter. But, the former Congressman may just be trying to raise awareness. The Rockaways were a part of Weiner's district, and according to The Observer, he was previously seen volunteering in the area.
