Anthony Weiner, the politician whose social media screw-up led to his resignation from Congress, has made a return to Twitter.
Weiner hadn't tweeted from the account in 18 months. The last tweet he sent prior to Wednesday's message was in June 2011, and read: "On with Rachel tonight. Gonna talk about Trump eating pizza with a fork! #DudeYoureANewYorker!"
His Twitter silence began after a scandal broke in 2011 revealing that Weiner had sent lewd images over the social network. Weiner stepped down from office soon after, and the moment will go down as one of the biggest political Twitter-oops of the century.
