In the aftermath of hurricane Sandy, Anthony Weiner has risen to the occasion by taking to his dormant Twitter account to help raise awareness.

The former congressman hadn’t tweeted since June 2011, right after he became embroiled in a racy photo scandal that would eventually lead him to step down from office. Weiner, who welcomed a son with wife Huma Abedin last December, has kept a low profile in New York since the public gaffe where he tweeted a photo of his own crotch. Several women came forward after that claiming to have had explicit online communications with him. 

Earlier today, he returned to Twitter to post a YouTube link for a short video that shows the devastation left by Sandy in the Rockaways. The tweet did not include any text from Weiner.

In July, the couple did an interview with People magazine amidst rumors that Weiner was considering getting back in the public eye and running for office.

“I can’t say absolutely that I will never run for public office, but I’m very happy in my present life,” Weiner told People.

His return to Twitter Wednesday has already garnered plenty of attention, including that of Donald Trump, who is fresh off a Twitter meltdown following President Obama’s re-election.

“Pervert alert. @RepWeiner is back on twitter. All girls under the age of 18, block him immediately,” Trump tweeted.

Ironically, Weiner’s last tweet before letting his account go dark for more than a year was a jab at Trump about his pizza eating habits.

“On with Rachel tonight. Gonna talk about Trump eating pizza with a fork! #DudeYoureANewYorker!” Weiner tweeted on June 1, 2011.
