Booker tweets his snow shoveling efforts

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) could not resist reverting back to his old ways, as snowstorms bore down on the East Coast on Friday.

Booker took to Twitter to announce he would be out shoveling snow for elderly residents and solicited volunteers to do the same.

Booker gained national prominence as Newark, N.J., mayor with a prolific Twitter account that highlighted his acts while running the city. In 2010, he live-tweeted his shoveling efforts.

Early Friday morning, he was at it again, as local news reported the Newark area received up to 8.5 inches of snow.

Booker started the day merely cautioning residents about driving in the storm.

But he soon hinted about volunteering himself.
