Back to his old ways? On Monday, Twitchy noted Anthony Weiner’s Twitter second coming and some people suspected he wouldn’t be doing followbacks anytime soon. But he just couldn’t resist following his beloved pals at Rockaway community newspaper The Wave.

In 2005, The Wave endorsed Weiner as the “Energizer Bunny.” And in 2009, Weiner honored the paper with a fawning  message that was entered into the Congressional Record. So even though The Wave isn’t a starry-eyed teenage girl, the paper lobbied Weiner to give it a Twitter follow.

@anthonyweiner waiting to see if @thewavenews will be your first follow.

Sage advice:

@thewavenews – I see @ anthonyweiner is following you. Just a heads up… Do NOT click through any Instagram links he sends. Just sayin’…

At least dirty DMs won’t be a problem. According to, The Wave doesn’t follow Anthony Weiner back.
