Late-Night Scott Brown Tweets Generate Twitter Attention

Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown raised eyebrows on Twitter Friday night when his verified account published a succession of three inscrutable messages -- the first of which appears to have been a severe misspelling of the word "whatever," and the last referring to a "brilliant," but as-yet-unidentified acquaintance named Matt.

The first tweet was published at 12:46 a.m. ET. The final tweet went out two minutes later.

UPDATE: As Slate's Dave Weigel points outs, the three tweets sent out to Brown's entire following were shortly preceded by a series of curt replies to Twitter accounts who had earlier in the evening tweeted critical statements at Brown.

UPDATE -- 3:50 p.m.: The tweets have been removed from Brown's Twitter.
