As you can see from the screenshot above, Anthony Weiner is back on Twitter. (That blue check by his name means that the micro-blogging site has verified his identity.) So far, the former New York congressman has sent out only one tweet, a short message containing no words (or errant twitpics!). Instead, his maiden tweet under his new @anthonyweiner handle is a link to his "64 Ideas to Keep New York the Capital of the Middle Class" white paper, the latest hint that he's eyeing a run for New York City mayor.
His old—now infamous—handle was @repweiner, a name that is no longer accurate given he resigned in disgrace from Congress after being caught using it to send out lewd photos of himself.
