Have you heard? Disgraced state senator Jeff Smith is tweeting from prison!

Yes, even though Smith is not allowed to use Twitter behind bars, the social-media junkie is still able to get his 140-character (or less) pearls to followers. Apparently, it's a pretty involved process, too, requiring Smith to:
  1. Pen his messages in an invisible, urine-based ink;
  2. Corn-hole the notes for safekeeping;
  3. Sling-shot them over prison walls during recess;
  4. Have a former aide retrieve the notes in the dead of night and post them onto the Internet.
Since arriving in the poky last week, Smith's public tweets have focused primarily on the mundane topics of prison basketball and chess. But as Unreal has discovered, Smith's private tweets (sent only to a select few individuals), reveal a man hell-bent on busting his way out of prison and returning to the political realm.

A few of those tweets follow:
