Disgraced former politician Anthony Weiner got a rise out of Twitter users on Thursday after saying he has a "feeling" his social media history may have led the company to introduce a new setting to filter content based on account origin and previous behavior.

Weiner, who was then and still is married to Hillary Clinton staffer Huma Abedin, resigned from office in 2011 after accidentally publicly tweeting a suggestive picture of himself. He later ran for New York City mayor, only to lose the election by a landslide after it became clear he had continued sending explicit messages to several women.

One Twitter user seemed to agree with Weiner that he may have influenced the policy change, announced by Twitter the same day.

Another user responded with a jab at Wiener's now-infamous alleged sexting alias.
