Weinergate and the Twitter Response
When Rep. Anthony Weiner held a press conference Monday afternoon, revealing that he had pulled a ‘Bret Farve’ and revealed photo of himself to a young woman on his Twitter account, Twitter quickly erupted with continuous jokes about the situation.
Jokes at the congressman’s expense quickly surfaced, hitting the social media site while Weiner was still speaking in New York.
Weiner had originally reported that his Twitter account was hacked. Nice try. On Monday, he changed his story and admitted that he “accidentally” sent the revealing photo and said he was “deeply sorry” for his actions.
Today’s Top Tweets feature jokes at Weiner’s expense by D, Jason Mustian, Chris Regan, Jess Dweck, Ali MacLean, Jim Bosha, Alex Baze, Caissie St.Onge, Jill Morris and Peter-John Byrnes. Check them out in the gallery below!
