MIAMI – “Disastersrus” has Tweeted again.

In an article Aug. 8 The Associated Press noted the former Florida emergency manager’s absence from Twitter since becoming the head of FEMA, however. At the time he hadn’t Tweeted in more than four months. On Thursday, there was a new Tweet from ‘disastersrus,’ though Fugate’s page has now been blocked from public view.
