Former Toronto mayor (and current city councillor) Rob Ford is back in the headlines today after a relatively quiet couple of months spent undergoing cancer treatment.

Ford, who became world-famous in 2013 as "Toronto's crack-smoking mayor," hasn't been linked to any new drug scandals since taking a leave of absence to seek help for substance abuse in 2014.

Nor has he been captured on camera yelling Jamaican expletivesreading while driving, or knocking anyone over while running through the council chamber.

His notoriously candid way of speaking to reporters, on the other hand, continues to raise eyebrows, shake heads and drop jaws, just as it has since the beginning of his political career. 

Torontonian Twitter users had a blast on Wednesday as the former mayor's verified account began answering questions posed to him on the social network, seemingly out of nowhere. 

And the burns didn't stop there.

After smoking CityNews, Ford went on to take digs at Toronto's current mayor, John Tory...

Toronto Blue Jays president and CEO Mark Shapiro...


Kanye West...

The Toronto Maple Leafs...

And the Toronto Maple Leafs again.

He also got playful with some of the questions he was asked, telling Twitter users that his rap name would be "Big Jones," that he'd rather fight one horse-sized duck than 100 duck-sized horses, and that he would choose himself to play Rob Ford in the movie version of his life.

Unlike his former deputy mayor Norm Kelly, also a current city councillor, Ford hasn't ever framed himself as particularly savvy when it comes to social media.

Some of those who were following his feed today expressed doubts about the veracity of its tweets, suggesting that Ford's account was either hacked or being run by someone else.

To confirm that he was, in fact, behind the answers in his feed, Ford shared a photo of himself holding Wednesday's edition of The National Post.

Ford also confirmed via Twitter that he intends to run for mayor again in 2018.

As of Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. ET, the councillor was still responding to queries on Twitter.
