Bqhatevwr, Part 2: Scott Brown Tweets Nonsense All Over Again

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A nonsensical message was posted Friday morning to the official Twitter account of former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA).

Another series of bizarre early-morning tweets, including messages like “Bqhatevwr” and “Your brilliant Matt,” were posted to Scott’s account almost exactly a year ago. The former senator later said that he was not intoxicated at the time the messages were posted, and they were instead the result of a “pocket tweet.”

Late last year, Brown dropped a reference to Massachusetts from his Twitter handle before moving to New Hampshire, where many believe he is contemplating a challenge to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).

Update: Brown blamed pocket-tweeting as the culprit once again.
