“Anyone ever hear of pocket tweet, pocket dial?”

— Former Sen. Scott Brown explaining that what appeared to be a drunken tweet (“Bqhatevwr”) last month was, in fact, just a butt dial. Brown said that daughter Ayla was trying to teach him to use Facebook and Twitter on his iPhone5 when he “responded to a couple of people and then put it in my pocket,” he told Boston’s Fox 25. “The next thing I wake up and it’s trending worldwide.”
