FIRST ON FOX: Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., has rejoined Twitter, the site that initially sparked his sexting downfall, but admitted to Fox News Digital that social media “is not a comfortable place for me.” 

Twitter users voted overwhelmingly against the scandal-plagued Democrat making a return to the social media platform Thursday after he tweeted a poll.

“Advice for returning to Twitter,” Weiner captioned the poll.

More than 62% of respondents voted for “just no” while about 32% said he should “act like nothing happened.” More than 6,500 users had cast a vote in the poll as of Thursday morning.

Weiner sent his last tweet in 2013 prior to the Twitter poll.
