Weiner Making a Comeback... On Twitter

Former Forest Hills Rep. tweets for first time in 18 months.

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."

The New York Post quoted a political source saying the tweet could be the beginning of another run for office who is married to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Weiner, who moved to Manhattan after his scandal subsided, has yet to expound on the link.
