Former Republican Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown tweeted the word “maybe” with no context on Monday afternoon, prompting media amusement and a clarifying tweet just hours after Brown played “Surrender” onstage with Cheap Trick.
“Maybe,” Brown tweeted Monday afternoon, prompting social media speculation as to what the former senator meant. Brown famously tweeted the word “bqhatevwr” during a bizarre late-night tweeting session in January, weeks after losing his 2012 re-election bid to Elizabeth Warren.
“In the form of an update, as i was rushing to get a plane I responded -maybe to a charitable appearance request. That’s what I get 4 rushing,” Brown tweeted in a follow-up to his mysterious original tweet.
Brown has recently been on a whirlwind tour of early presidential primary states, first visiting the Iowa state fair before making his way to New Hampshire. Brown has decided against a 2014 gubernatorial run in Massachusetts, which leaves the 2016 GOP presidential primary as one of the few upcoming races he could still choose to enter.
Brown played guitar onstage Sunday at Hampton Beach Casino in New Hampshire with Cheap Trick, the band responsible for the 1979 hit “I Want You To Want Me.”
