Weiner Tweet has political world abuzz

Any coincidence that Rep. Bob Turner called it quits?

From Patch….Democrats had a big night on Tuesday, securing the presidency for Barack Obama until 2016, and holding the Senate majority. 

Could that be what made an old, familiar face pop back up in the Twittersphere?

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who had not used his Twitter feed since his lewd photo scandal broke last year, sent out a link to a video of Hurricane Sandy damage in the Rockaways to his nearly 70,000 followers Wednesday afternoon.

The tweet immediately set the media world in New York abuzz, with some thinking the message heralded a comeback for the former representative.

At least one user urged Weiner to get back in the saddle, tweeting at the former congressman: “NYC needs you. Answer the call.”
