UPDATE (3:41 p.m.) – Gov. Wise says his account was “hacked.”
It appears my twitter account was hacked. I apologize for any confusion my recent tweets have caused.

Gov. Bob Wise, now president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, is fairly active on Twitter (@BobWise48). But most of his posts are strictly business. Until yesterday.
I don’t know what that means, but it was quickly followed up by another odd post.
I don’t know what that means either, but figured 1. it was an autocorrect error, 2. the former governor was pocket-dialing Twitter or 3. a small child commandeered his smart phone. The tweets were eventually deleted and I went back to writing stories for today’s newspaper.
But then, this afternoon, Wise started tweeting more insane messages.
Those posts were followed by these two:
I don’t know about you, but I’m wondering if this is some sort of code. My friends on Twitter offered some suggestions.

@ZackHarold bark twice if you are in Milwaukee?

Although I’ve tweeted several times to Gov. Wise about these strange messages, he has yet to reply. It’s worrying me a little bit. Would somebody go check on him?
