Think before you tweet,
especially if you’re a congressman from New York. Anthony Weiner resigned
in 2011 after admitting he had published lewd photos of himself via Twitter.
The photos were intended for women with whom he had “inappropriate”
relationships but had never met in person, he said. Weiner is now a leading
candidate to replace Michael Bloomberg (the founder and majority owner of
Bloomberg LP, the parent of Bloomberg.com) as mayor of New York City, so his
comeback ability is still TBD.
