Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who infamously broadcast his private parts for all the world to see on Twitter, has rejoined the popular social media service.

Weiner, who is now seriously contemplating a run for mayor of New York City, rejoined Twitter on Monday, tweeting under the confirmed handle @anthonyweiner.

His more graphic tweets in 2011 were sent from an old account: @repweiner.

At press time, Weiner had tweeted only one thing: the link to his “Keys to the City” plan, a brief of policies for New York City billed as “64 Ideas to Keep New York the Capital of the Middle Class.” It is similar to a campaign plan Weiner wrote, which was released concurrently with a New York Times magazine profile of him and his wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
