At 12:25 local time, Johnny Manziel broke his self-imposed Twitter ban for an important announcement: Drake is awesome. 

Larry Brown Sports happened upon a rare occurrence in social media at the moment: the Johnny Manziel tweet. 

Here is the tweet that was so important, Manziel just had to break his own ban to post it. Of course, it was taken down shortly after. 

As Larry Brown Sports reminds us, the words are lyrics from the Drake song "5 AM in Toronto," which the Toronto Star reports has a new music video. 

This tweet is peculiar because Manziel promised us that he was taking a break from Twitter. Considering ESPN reported on that self-imposed ban in late March, this particular Twitter timeout wouldn't even classify as a respite, let alone a breather. 

While I appreciate the time it was posted—forcing us to assume Johnny Football was inebriated—the best part is he decided to skirt the NSFW lyrics and work clean with this tweet. 

Unless Manziel is a sensible drunk (a type of drunk I am sure does not exist), he may have just been uber stoked about this new Drake video and wanted to make sure you all knew he was sitting on the edge of his seat at midnight.

In case you were wondering, it seems that post has also been taken down

Manziel has a hobby this offseason: confuse every last one of us. I still have no clue why he would shun Twitter but embrace Instagram—one can be just as incriminating as the other. 

I am also befuddled as to why he would take time to publish and then erase posts that are seemingly innocuous. 

The whole mystery has me a bit woozy, so I will give up the search for answers and continue my Manziel Twitter stakeout. Something tells me he's about to post a new tweet he will erase shortly. 

Hit me up on Twitter and we can wait patiently together.
