Scott Brown Blames Weird Tweets on "Pocket Tweeting," Then Contradicts Himself, Then Says He Hasn't "Been Drunk Since [His] Bachelor Party"

Posted by on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 1:33 PM

And it's all in the same video!

My favorite part is when he says "Anyone ever hear of pocket tweet, pocket dial? I mean it was pretty simple. I mean, I have an iPhone 5. If anyone has iPhone 5, the keys are small. It’s very, very sensitive. Ayla was teaching me how to get on Facebook and Twitter, and there were some areas I didn’t really understand. So, after her concert, we were here in the living room and responded to a couple of people and then put it in my pocket. The next thing I wake up and it’s trending worldwide."

And then that little couch rat walks by.

That just sounds like a shoddy attempt at evasion in a sit-down with a reporter who is clearly smitten with him. Plus, if it was your pocket, how did your pocket type actual words? He's also "learning how to play guitar"—can't you see it awkwardly placed in the background behind him?

So it's just his pocket that doesn't know the difference between "you're" and "your"?

Yeah, like a Billy Squier stroke. The guitar is right out of a Will Ferrell skit. Awesome.

His phone obviously has autocorrect shortcuts activated.

Don't iPhones automatically put themselves to sleep if you don't use them for a while, and you have to deliberately swipe across it to access any apps?

Has Scott Brown ever used an iPhone?

Scott who?

Not to mention, fabric (like in a pocket) can't usually interact with the iPhone touch screen. Total bullshit.

@6, by default it does after 2 minutes, but that can be changed or turned off entirely. However someone like Scott Brown who clearly doesn't know shit about iPhones probably wouldn't be able to figure out how to change the auto-lock settings.

Do you think she blew him before the interview, or right afterward?

Why'd he even bother to deny it? Makes him look like a liar (because, well...) and the tweets were dismissive but no big deal.

@10, after, he seems like he's ready for a nap.

How come it's "butt calls" but "pocket tweeting"? Must be the "thinking with your dick" aspect.

Gorgeous but a little boring. And no Scotty, I've never pocket tweeted before.
