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.
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...
.@Justorbs Our GM won exec of the year, we let him go cuz of a guy whose biggest accomplishment is getting people to say his last name right— @TorontoRobFord
@iD4RO You work at Buzzfeed. Your job is to create/look at things that make the rest us waste time at work. How bad can it be?— @TorontoRobFord
.@AnyiaNoboh I'm shocked he got a gold ticket, didn't think auditioners own songs rated well with the judges.— @TorontoRobFord
The Toronto Maple Leafs...
And the Toronto Maple Leafs again.
@cole_miner11 you act like they have a choice.— @TorontoRobFord
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.
.@AbTheLeafFan I'll be on the ballot running for Mayor in 2018— @TorontoRobFord
As of Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. ET, the councillor was still responding to queries on Twitter.
