ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe reports: Sen. Chris Dodd, a retiring Democrat from Connecticut, is apparently having some issues with his twitter account. At 11:36a, a tweet popped up from his official account, “U love torturing me w this sh#$.” Minutes later, a swift apology came. “From Dodd Staff – Apologies to Dodd's followers, last tweet was not from Chris Dodd,” the second tweet read. No word on what he – or his staff – is being tortured with. Ah, the hazards of twitter… UPDATE: Dodd’s staff has sent along the following statement, blaming the incident on “a technical mistake.” “Due to a technical mistake, a message was inadvertently sent from Senator Dodd's twitter account. Senator Dodd did not send the message. We have corrected the situation and apologize to his followers for the mistake and inappropriate language used in the message.”
