Three years ago, Brown was a little-known Republican state senator from Massachusetts who shocked Democrats by winning a U.S. Senate seat. Now, having compiled a voting record more moderate than his tea party allies would have liked and losing his bid for a full term, Brown is considering whether to seize a second chance to return to the Senate in another special election.

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.
