Not many former politicians end up "worldwide trending on a pocket tweet," but former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. did last month.

Brown blamed his new iPhone 5 and his pocket for his infamous "bqhatevwr" tweet in January. In an apparent Twitter frenzy, Brown had also tweeted "whatever" at several followers.

He denied drunk tweeting.

"I rarely drink," he told Boston's local Fox affiliate. "The last time I was ever drunk was my bachelor party; that was 28 years ago, 27 years ago? So I guess no one ever pocket dialed or tweeted before."
