Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) promised that he would post a picture from his boyhood Bar Mitzvah when he hit 10,000 followers on Twitter. He made his goal last Thursday, Feb. 10, but followers are still waiting for the promised picture a week later.
According to Weiner, followers will have to wait for his mom to dig up the photo. Last Thursday, he tweeted, “My mom is looking for the pic. #explainingtwittertoyourmomisnteasy.”
Followers waiting impatiently to see a 13-year-old Weiner photo might excuse the congressman for spending long hours on the House floor participating in the continuing resolution debate.
“Clearly the Jewfro is working. Nearly 10k followers,” he tweeted Thursday about an hour before he hit his goal, referring to his yearbook profile picture. He added the hashtag #dontworrynobrispicsat20k.
Bris, or Brit milah, is the Jewish circumcision rite usually performed on eight-day-old Jewish babies.
As of Friday, Weiner has 10,820 followers.
