Anthony Weiner returns to Twitter to promote radio show

Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner returned to Twitter for the first time in nine years to seek advice on how to stage a comeback.

Weiner, 57, whose sexting with a 15-year-old girl led to a sex offender conviction, posted a poll on Twitter on the best way to announce his return while promoting his radio shows on 77 WABC.

“Advice to return to Twitter,” Weiner wrote, giving voters three choices: “Update your bio and go, pretend nothing happened and just don’t do it.”

With more than 10,000 votes on Saturday, nearly 65 percent of people advised the man who once called himself “Carlos Danger” to stay off Twitter.

Weiner had shocked the world with his constant sexting scandals, with a photo he shared showing his crotch as he lay next to his 4-year-old son sleeping.

The scandal-ridden Democrat admitted that social media wasn’t the best place for him, but he thought he would try it to promote his shows, “The Middle with Anthony Weiner” and “The Left Versus The Right.” he hosts along with Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa.

“Social media is not a comfortable place for me and I am very ambivalent about its place in my life and the role it has had in society,” Weiner said. Fox news“But if you want people to know about a radio show you’re doing, that’s helpful.”

But if the poll and comments are any clear indicator, Twitter isn’t ready to welcome back Weiner, who resigned in 2010 after accidentally tweeting a picture of himself in his underwear.

The former congressman initially blamed the photo for a hack before admitting to sending the photo, and after running for mayor of New York City in 2013, Weiner admitted to sharing illegal photos with at least three women.

Many were shocked — including his ex-wife, former Hilary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — to see that among the messages he sent to other women was a photo of his crotch lying next to his sleeping, then four-year-old son.

In 2016, a 15-year-old girl told DailyMail.com that Weiner had been sending her sexually explicit messages for months.

Federal investigators confirmed he had sexed the minor and watched her strip over Skype and Snapchat, leading to a 21-month prison sentence in 2017.

The saga of Weiner’s demise was heavily fabricated by the media, so many quickly remembered his story when they advised him to stay off Twitter.

Pointing to the obvious, one Twitter user with the handle Zacherie Smith wrote, “Isn’t Twitter how you got into trouble?”

Another user by the name of Sky echoed many of the comments, writing simply, “Buddy, this is a terrible idea.”

A Twitter user with the handle John reminded Weiner that his latest attempt at a Twitter comeback in 2012 was unsuccessful and was mocked by former President Donald Trump.

‘Bruh. Just don’t,” John tweeted. “You weren’t well the last time you came back.”

Trump had taken a jab at the disgraced Democrat when Weiner announced his return on Twitter in 2012, “Pervert alert. @RepWeiner is back on twitter. All girls under 18, block him immediately.’

Others on the social media platform urged Weiner to stay on Twitter, not to make a comeback, but to face another scandal.

“I love a good train wreck,” tweeted twitter user Rachael Vance.
