Disgraced New York Democrat Anthony Weiner is claiming that he “accidentally” favorited a tweet from an Internet hookup app.
Weiner made a stir on Friday, June 13, when Twitter users noticed that he favorited a tweet from the Internet hookup site Tinder. The tweet advertising the site said, “Tinder will now be the ultimate sext machine.”
It wasn’t long before Twitter exploded with attacks on Weiner, the Democrat who made himself infamous and lost his seat in Congress for using social media to send sexually explicit messages to young women across the country.
Weiner, though, had a ready excuse: It was an accident.
He made his excuse on Twitter saying he “accidentally hit the star thingy on a @voxdotcom story about Tinder.”
Where is Neal Rauhauser? I’m sure he wants to blame this on me and Mike Stack.
