“Are those my briefs?” – Congressman in Twitpic confusion

Hat tip to Adam Stachura for finding this one…

It’s something that has happened to us all. Getting undressed after a hard day at the office, your phone slips out of your pocket, tumbles through the air, the turbulence causes the camera application to turn on and, completely by accident, takes a photo of you in standing in your M&S briefs and some how ends up on your Twitter account…

Well, maybe not all of us. But apparently it has happened to Representative Anthony Weiner, a Democrat from 9th District, New York City. Mr Weiner is under pressure to explain how a picture of him wearing nothing but his briefs wound up on his Twitter account and sent to a college student on the other side of the country.

Rep. Weiner claims his account has been hacked and has hired an internet security firm to investigate further.

Fair enough you might say, but it is incredible that someone who has harnessed the power of social media to promote his political activities could manage to make such a # (see what I did!) of explaining away the stray tweet.

In an interview with MSNBC Rep. Weiner said he could not “say with certitude” that the picture was not of him before adding,  “I don’t know what photographs are out there in the world of me. ”

Mmm, I’d like to think that I know the exact location of all photos of me in my underwear at any moment in time. Not that there are any…

Clearly Rep. Weiner likes to live on the edge.
