Anthony Weiner Twittered Me!
Screams Meghan McCain from her last column title at The Daily Beast. Wait a minute, what?? Anthony Weiner + Tweet + young woman = SCANDAL! And Meghan was involved? Holy shit, we're in luck, an inside scoop! Or not.
Anthony Weiner TWEETED ME!A few days after Anthony Weiner tried to send a 21-year-old college student a picture of his wiener he also Tweeted me, but it’s not what you think.
Bitch, you don't know my life!
First of all, I didn't think ANYTHING. Why should we? If he'd said a word to you you'd have been screaming it from the rooftops before this scandal ever broke. And honey, you're not all that - men aren't lining up, ok? I'm sure the porn actresses and hookers were much more interesting.
I remember seeing Congressman Weiner’s Twitter account before his scandal and I was impressed by his use of the hashtag.
Oh he'll use your hashtag. Well, not yours. And yes, I'd expect you to be impressed by that. Look! It's a SHINY!!! I can make FLAME appear with this little device in my pocket - ooooohhh.
On May 29, Weiner publicly thanked me for “my kind words in The New York Times and for [my] support of gay marriage.”
Put the quote in the wrong place.
His Tweet has since been retweeted to me a lot this week, with a lot of bad puns and poorly constructed jokes attached. I had started following him back on Twitter.
The dick jokes? Well, if one doesn't want those, one doesn't send a picture of his erect naked dick to strangers. His name just makes it funnier, even if it's not the right spelling.
Although, let it be said, I did not receive any direct messages from the congressman.
Raise your hand if you ever though Meghan got direct (we're not even talking private there, just anything addressed to her at all) messages from Weiner? See, even pervs like Weiner know you're a rat-trap.
This week, my favorite form of social media has been blasted in every news outlet with Weiner’s infamous Twitpic seen around the world.
Ok, then, raise your hand if you're surprised that Meghan's favorite media comes in 140 characters or less? Anyone? Bueller?
Also, she links to the "crotch shot" instead of the REAL dick shot. Anyone surprised she hasn't seen the real picture seen round the world?
TRIGGER WARNING - PENIS SHOT. Oh, you're supposed to do that before you show it? Huh. Learn something every day.
Twitter is the most impulsive form of social media, but it’s still the most celebrated among politicians and pundits within the beltway, which is curious, since it can destroy any sense of privacy. Some of the most popular users include the president himself with 8.5 million followers (he trails Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber), Al Gore with 2.2 million followers and Newt Gingrich with 1.3 million followers. My dad uses Twitter to talk about pork barrel spending going on in Congress, among other things, and my mom brings awareness to her charities and posts pictures of her two Yorkshire terriers Lucy and Desi.
Blah blah - your dad has learned a lot since the campaign. I thought his hands were too bad for typing? Oh, that's what you meant about being written by press secretaries.
Your mom should know better - if you're going to name dogs Lucy and Desi, they should be cocker spaniels! Jeez.
On the positive side, I find that if I like a pundit or media personality and start following them on Twitter, I tend to like them more and become a bigger fan of theirs. If I follow someone and I don’t like their Twitter feed, I unfollow them and often have a changed opinion of the person.
Yes, change your political views and affiliations in 140 characters or less! I think that's called "shallow". Which we already knew you were.
By the way, I no longer follow Congressman Weiner on Twitter at the request of my mother. She said it made her uncomfortable.
Well, I'm sure he's devastated. And I'm sure he's very concerned about what he's going to twat at us from rehab.
But she makes a good twit.
